Illustrating a Paint Title

Standard

We talked about how one might illustrate the names of paint colors. That is where the inspiration for this lesson came from.

Today, I took that idea to my third graders. I gave them titles of paints that I found at our local hardware store and brought in swatches. Their job was to create their own paint color and title.

Such a fun lesson. The kids were amazingly creative: Gloomy Grave, Magnificent Maui,  Jurassic Jungle, just to name a few.
