Color Wheel : Lesson Plans & Ideas All color theory is based on the principle that “color is light”. The colors we see are the result of a white light; when the white light is broken by a prism we see the spectrum. A rainbow is a common example of a spectrum and is the result of a raindrop acting as the prism. Painting a color wheel gives practice in recognizing color relationships, use of brushes and paint. Teacher defines and gives examples of color terms (orally and written) using a large color wheel and the current environment (clothing, furnishings) to identify colors. HINT: Success in achieving the desired color is most easily attained by starting with a small dollop of the lightest color and adding small incremental amounts of the more intense color to reach the desired hue, tint or shade; i.e. to get pink, which is a tint of red, start with a teaspoon size dollop of white, dip just the tip of a small brush in the red and introduce it to the white paint.

buffaloadventures What Parts Are There to a Plant? Photo Credit: Purpose To observe and document similarities and differences between parts of plants. Context While ideas of ecology, biology, horticulture, etc., are far too abstract for K-2 students, young children are curious about their living environment and are ready to be introduced to the idea that they live on this earth along with plants and animals. This lesson supports students interacting with nature and provides them with a framework for their observations by offering them opportunities to explore, question, and document similarities and differences among plant parts. In this lesson, students will identify and sort plant parts through hands-on activities and group discussions and then work with magnifying lenses and tape measures to document their observations on a student sheet. You can expect that the younger students of this level will focus on one attribute of the plant parts they are examining, while the older students will more likely observe a few attributes.

Animal Inquiry The Animal Inquiry interactive is a versatile tool that can enhance student inquiry in research at the elementary level. The graphic organizer invites students to explore four facets of animals [basic facts, animal babies, interaction with others, and habitats (shown at left)]; the possibilities for extensions or adaptations, moreover, make this a a nice complement with inquiry-based projects. The follow-up writing prompts can be used to organize research questions as well as to record findings. After completing individual sections or the entire organizer, students have the ability to print out their final versions for feedback and assessment.

Great, great job: to everyone who was involved in creating this Bible.
