Students will learn about the difference between organic and geometric shapes. They will also learn about warm and cool colors.

By Andrea Mulder-Slater

Objectives:

  • Students will learn about the difference between organic and geometric shapes.
  • Students will learn about warm and cool colors.

What You Need:

  • pencils
  • paper (8 1/2″ x 11″ — two sheets per student)
  • pencil crayons or crayons or oil pastels
  • a ruler or straight edge (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Talk about geometric shapes and organic shapes. (See vocabulary above). Find examples in and out of the classroom.
  2. Talk about warm and cool colors (See vocabulary above).
  3. Have students divide both of their papers into six squares, using their pencils. They can do this free hand or they might wish to use a straight edge or ruler.
  4. On sheet #1 — using a pencil, have students fill each of their squares with organic shapes. These should not be recognizable objects. Rather, they should just be shapes. They can then color their shapes in using only warm colors or cool colors.
  5. On sheet #2 — using a pencil, have students fill each of their squares with geometric shapes. These should not be recognizable objects. Rather, they should just be shapes. They can then color their shapes in using only warm colors or cool colors (whatever they did not use on sheet #1).
  6. Display the work together.
