Standard 4/Objective 1 a - e:
Standard 4: Explain the terms associated with the color wheel and the major color schemes. (Level II: Comprehension, Cognitive Domain) Objective 1: Identify and explain the use of color and hue. (Level II: Comprehension, Cognitive Domain) ! ! ! Create a color wheel and explain that it is a way to organize color. (Level V: Synthesis, Cognitive Domain) Point out that primary colors cannot be mixed from other pigments.(Level III: Analysis, Cognitive Domain) Describe how secondary colors are made (by mixing equal amounts of two primary colors.) (Level II: Comprehension, Cognitive Domain) Label the six tertiary/intermediate colors and describe how they are made (by mixing an equal amount of a primary and a secondary color.)(Level II: Comprehension, Cognitive Domain) Differentiate that neutrals (white, black, gray, brown, beige, tan, and cream) colors are different from those in the color wheel.

Introduction/Set Induction (5 minutes):

Divide your students up into small groups, 4-5 students. Give each group 1-portion cup of jelly bellies or another colorful candy.

Transition (5 minutes):
Explain to students that we will begin talking about the color wheel. The color wheel is a basic tool we use when working with colors. We will need to know this information to be able to complete the assignment today of making our own color wheel. Start the presentation The Color Wheel.ppt and let students know they can split their jellybeans up amongst their group and eat them during the presentation. Students arent required to take notes but it might be helpful if they do so.

Lesson Body (60 minutes)

Direct Instruction: PHASE 1: Orientation to the Content (10 minutes): Establish a framework for the lesson and orient the students to the new material Provide objective of lesson and level of performance required: The objective for today is to learn about and create your own color wheel by combining the primary colors secondary and tertiary colors. Neutral colors cannot be created using the color wheel. Describe the content of the lesson and relationship to prior knowledge/experience: Students will be learning about the color wheel, a concept that they might have a basic knowledge of. This presentation will delve deeper into the world of color and how colors are created. We will also discuss how colors have played an important role throughout history. Discuss the procedures of the lesson, the different parts of the lesson and students responsibility during each activity During the PowerPoint presentation students are to sit quietly and take notes if they wish. Slides 1-22 are about the history of color and how colors are used on the color wheel. Slide 23 is to be used to introduce the assignment of creating a color wheel. After students have created their color wheels continues with slides 24-31 that cover color schemes. These slides will help create a basic level of knowledge that will be needed for the next days activities. Students should be highly encourages to take notes on the different color schemes so they can replicate them next time. PHASE 2: Presentation (30 minutes): Teacher presents new content and or skill. The success of the student relies on the thoroughness and quality of the teachers initial explanation. Teacher notes for the presentation are within the PowerPoint The Color Wheel PHASE 3: Structured Practice (Not Necessary): Lead students through practice examples Students have seen enough examples of the color wheel during the presentation and will have an example for them to look at while completing their seatwork.

PHASE 4: Guided Practice (30 minutes): Defined as in class seat work with the teacher circulating monitoring students work and providing feedback Pass out a blank color wheel to each of the students. They are to use colored pencils or crayons to complete the color wheel as well as label each color using professional architectural writing. PHASE 5: Independent Practice (Homework): Additional class time or homework beginning when students achieved 85-90% accuracy level. For homework students are to create their own color wheel out of whichever medium they choose. Examples are: Paint swatches, chalk, food, flowers, clothes, etc. Students can submit their actual color wheel that they made or a picture of the color wheel that they created.

Transition (10 minutes):

After the 30 minutes that had been set-aside for students to work on their color wheels have them clean up their areas and turn in their color wheels for participation points. Students will receive points based on the completeness of their color wheels.

Summary/Closure (10 minutes):

To finish up class show the last 7 slides of the PowerPoint that talk about color schemes. Tell the students that the next time they meet as a class they will be using color schemes and color psychology to help clients create a space that meets their needs. Ask if students have any questions about the homework or anything else.

Students will turn in their color wheels that they made during class to receive participation points, this is a first attempt so if students didnt complete it correctly just let them know what they missed. The homework for the night should be graded based on completion and accuracy.
