Enjoy using this color by number with your students! It is perfect as a back to school icebreaker activity, but could be used at any time during the year. You can learn a bit about your students as they give some thought to their personal learning styles and study habits. In addition, the completed pictures make great classroom decorations!
Each completed picture will be unique, as the colors used will depend on how each student responds to each question.
In general, more primary colors (red, blue, yellow) will appear if the student is a traditional learner. Those who enjoy technology will tend to see more pink and purple in their completed picture. Students who may prefer expressing their learning in visual or artistic ways may notice more green and orange. If black or purple is used often, it may indicate a student who struggles with learning and organization.
Please remember that the colors appearing in the completed picture merely give an impression of the student. This is not a scientifically developed activity! You, as the teacher, might use it to gain insight about your students. It isn’t necessary to discuss and analyze the results with students. They will think about their learning style preferences and study habits just by answering the questions.
