- circles of construction paper in blue, yellow, green, and red
- chart paper and markers in blue, yellow, green, and red
Key Science Concepts
- There are many different colors.
- A single color can have different shades, from very light to very dark.
Tell children, We’re going to go on a color hunt. I’ll give you each a colored circle, like the colored circles we saw in the book. See if you can find things in the room that match your colored circle.
- Hand each child a construction paper circle and send them off to search for objects of the same color. Ask them to bring the objects back to the circle.
- Ask each child to name the color of their circle and show the objects they found that matches it.
Reflect and Share
Create a chart with a column for colors and in the corresponding column, draw or write down the name of the objects children found. Use a marker of that same color. Ask, Are the objects you found the exact same color as your circle of paper? How are they different?
