Our 5th Graders are learning about color symbolism! To introduce students to color as an emotion, we watched a fun animated and interactive video that explores each color and its meaning. On a Post-it students were asked to write the colors that best symbolism who they are. For example, we learned that the color red symbolizes joy and fun. Using a wire hanger and colored yarn, students will be creating a weaving that visually explores color as a symbol.
My 5th Graders just loved this website so here it is! Enjoy exploring color in a whole new way : )
