Product Description
This project-based activity focuses primarily on language arts (poetry, comprehension, vocabulary, writing) but it can also be extended as a study in nature and color (combining language arts with science). Leveled activities for grades K-3.
All in all, the overall theme is a celebration of spring and the colorful transformation it makes in our world.

The first thing done is an observation of the changes occurring outside. (viewed from the classroom window..but you may take the class outside if you wish to)
a "T chart" is used to compare the colors of winter/spring. Complete instructions on how to go about doing this are included.

Next, a "color conversation" is initiated and the teacher and students make an anchor chart that categorizes items and their characteristic colors. Examples and instructions are included.

Another anchor chart is built upon the brainstorming results of items that fit into the category of "can be any color". Again, examples and instructions are given.

Last, the poem "Grandpa Lost His Glasses" is read to the class which is followed up with oral comprehension questions (provided).

The class can then make their own glasses using the template provided and make the lens the color of their choice.

After wearing the glasses, students will write a poem or a short paragraph about what they saw when they wore the glasses. OR, they can fill in the blanks of the modified rendition of the "Grandpa" poem. Also, there is a template for the younger children on which they list 8 things they "saw" while wearing their colored lens glasses.

There are also 3 beautifully framed blank pages for the students. Students can use these pages to illustrate their own poem or their favorite part of the poem.
