The Color Wheel … simple color names and simple color theory

Everyone enjoys colors, and elementary school students are no exception.  Teaching the colors can be done with drills and flashcards, but why not seize the opportunity to break from routine and do a little hands on learning?

Lesson 5 in Hi Friends 1 brings us a rather poorly executed framework for practicing the “What … do you like?” structure.  The theme appears to be shapes and colors and t-shirts. I have decided to break the lesson up into sections; first shapes, next colors, finally returning to the “What … do you like?” grammar and interview activity.

This Color Wheel worksheet is what I use when teaching colors, students color and write the names of the colors, I talk a little about color theory, and we play a game or two.  The kids enjoy it, and it helps to brighten up these dark November days.  Try it for yourself!color wheel english esl efl eigo noto hi friends
