Thematic Unit — Color
Thematic Unit ColorThis thematic unit is designed to teach and reinforce color concepts, encourage students to talk and write about ideas and feelings, explore the colorful world of science, introduce classroom art projects and relate the importance of color in cultures, celebrations, and holidays. The unit is based on the re-illustrated book, Hailstones and Halibut Bones featuring twelve of its poems for each of these colors: purple, gold, black, brown, blue, gray, white, orange, red, pink, green, and yellow.
Included in this supplemental book for teachers is a variety of activities in Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, and Music allowing students to truly experience the world of colors. To complete this resource, there are ideas for bulletin boards and a simple positive reinforcement program for classroom management.
Each lesson features a summary overview, sample daily lesson plan, overview of activities, overview of poems, and reproducible worksheets.
