These printable circles are made to accompany the color theory art game referenced in the Visual Art Curriculum Map for Grade 1. This game introduces movement into the art lesson, breaking up longer lesson times into manageable chunks for short attention spans.
How the game works:
1.) Distribute color circles to students in groups of six (one for each color).
2.) While referencing a color wheel or other color theory resource ask students to move into a circle or small group within their groups based on their answers to any of these questions, or ones you think to add:
*What are the primary colors?
*What are the secondary colors?
*How are the colors positioned on the color wheel?
*What two colors make orange?
*What two colors make green?
*What two colors make purple?
*What colors can be used to make brown?
*What is the contrasting color for red?
*What is the contrasting color for green?
*What is the contrasting color for yellow?
*What is the contrasting color for purple?
*What is the contrasting color for orange?
*What is the contrasting color for blue?
*What colors are warm colors?
*What colors are cool colors?
3) Use a timer to pace the game or to make it more challenging.
*Lamination of the printed circles is highly recommended for repeat use.
