Color Matters

Essential Question: How does color fit into different aspects of our lives?

Description: This project with color will explore how color can be seen in the different subjects and a way of students learning about quality work. Students will be expressing themselves through poetry in the form of Haikus and developing their use of figurative language relating color and emotion to the different seasons. Students will learn about the seasons and how they are seen in different ecosystems around the world and how the appearance of certain colors changes with the seasons and why. They will also learn how to mix different colors using ratios to develop varying degrees of color throughout the spectrum.
