"All colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites." Marc Chagall (Russian-French artist ~ 1887 - 1985)
Want to make learning colors more exciting
Here's a great activity that students love.
After students have learned the basic colors, we play the Color Game.
Two teams compete to know the colors of more than 100 items.
I have included color pictures of 30 items which students may not always be familiar with to be shown on an overhead first. We review them before we play the game.
A detailed description of how to play along with a chart of over 100 items is included.
The instructions and descriptions are in English. Your students will have already learned the colors and will be reviewing and reinforcing them through this activity.
* W A R N I N G ! *
We have to play several rounds because students get quite excited about this activity.
It can get pretty competitive !
1. An overhead of 30 items - pictures and colors in French
to review before playing
2. A detailed explanation in English of how to play
3. A chart of over 100 items to use during the game
4. An easy-to-grade test on colors
5. An answer key
for the test
6. A Points-Cadeaux sheet
~ an easy way to reward the winning team.
Everything is classroom-ready so you can use this activity right away. (38 pages)
