Students will learn the difference between warm and cool colors.

What You Need:

  • Markers, crayons, colored pencils or oil pastels (red, yellow, blue, orange, green, purple)
  • White drawing paper (9″ x 12″)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Warm/Cool Colors Handout
  • 12″ x 18″ colored construction paper for the book page
  • *Paper sizes are just guidelines.

What You Do:

Review the primary (red, yellow, blue) and secondary (orange, green, violet) colors with your students. Explain that these colors can also be grouped into warm or cool categories.

Talk about things that make us feel warm, and what their colors are. The sun is yellow and makes us feel warm, fire is yellow, red and orange and also makes us feel warm. Do the same for the cool colors (blues, greens and blue-violets)…
