Paint swatch poems


Language Arts  



During our poetry unit, I like to go to the local “home store” and get some paint swatches. They have really weird names like, Volcanic Burst, or Leapin’ Lizards. I cut off the real names of the colors and have them pick one. They are to then name their color creatively. They then need to think about where that color takes them. What do they see, here, smell, etc, when they think of that color? They then need to write a poem surrounding/about their color.
