Sometimes I get a wild hair to push my younger students! I really wanted to encourage them to think of objects as having more than one color. Instead of grabbing just an orange to color a pumpkin...think about what colors could be used to make a pumpkin have more impact. So I had them pull all their yellow - red colors out of their crayon box. I showed them how to blend one color into another as not to get a stripe effect. I think for 1st graders...they did an AMAZING job!!
