Product Description
This zip file includes two PPT files and three Word documents. It also refers to a free color wheel handout available here:

An included, common core aligned lesson plan describes the suggested order of use for materials. It is available as the preview file.

The first guiding powerpoint, which includes integrated activities for student participation, introduces the scientific aspects of color: light, pigment, darkness, color blindness, color wheel, etc. It also includes an optional section specifically tailored to costume and fashion design. Slide notes are provided throughout for you the teacher to guide the activities and discussions accompanying the presentation.

The second powerpoint discusses the psychological, cultural, and natural associations of color through pictures. Students are asked to discuss the emotions they associate with several color-dominate pictures to find the natural, archetypal meanings of color (again, notes are provided to help the teacher lead this process). Then, notes on a mini lecture and discussion are included to examine how different cultures interpret the same color in different ways.

I do this unit early in the year and then students are able to use this terminology to find deeper meaning in their own and others' designs throughout the class and beyond.
