Different Shades of Color
I went to the paint section of our hardware store over the weekend and collected several paint sample papers that had four paint shades on one paper. I cut the paint shades apart last night so Grace could use these for sorting. Grace sorted different shades of blue, green, and orange today. The colors ranged in shade from light to dark. Grace was intrigued by the similar yet different shades of the three colors. Grace easily sorted according to color shade so I introduced her to the concept of light versus dark shades of color. Grace practiced sequencing colors according to their shade ~ the lighter shade first and the darker shade last. I will eventually add more shades of color for Grace to sequence. This was a fun way for Grace to explore a whole new world of color!
