We are still virtual, and supposed to be teaching color. My students do not have access to many supplies. So I did these two drawing lessons with my kindergarten students to teach primary & secondary colors. The books are great, and I feel they know what the colors are now. Well paint when we can return to face to face!!
In the story Hide Clyde, a Clyde is unable to change colors like his family until he is in a situation where there are crazy colors and patterns all around him (and he is in trouble!). I had the students use the primary colors for a patterned background, and then they used the same colors on Clyde so he was "hiding". They could also make a bug on his tongue that used different colors if they wanted. We are studying color this 9 weeks in kindergarten, and are looking at our color wheel, discussing color families, and such. You could use this lesson for any color concept that you wanted, or as a way to teach/reinforce patterns.
The dust bunnies can also be taken in whatever direction you wanted in regards to color (warm/cool, primary/secondary, analogous , complementary). The students have a lot of fun making funny faces on their dust bunnies & you can sneak some color concepts into your lesson!
