This was a dandy of a little art lesson based on color theory and (*GASP!*) writing. That's right, folks...descriptive writing in the art room. This attention-getter was the first 5-minute lesson I used in my unit on color with my fourth graders.
I got all these paint chips at my local Home Depot (I grab a handful every time I go in...I have quite an extensive collection!)
"Purple is the color of the flowers I got on my first daddy date". I die.
