Third Grade Warm Colored Sun Designs

Third grade reviewed what they learned about warm colors in second grade. The warm colors on the color wheel are Red, Yellow, and Orange. Also Red-Orange, Yellow-Orange, and Pink are considered warm colors. To help the students remember the warm colors, I always suggest they think of things that are hot--like lava, fire, the sun, etc...and think of what colors they are. They are usually warm colors.

For the project they designed their own sun design, then pressed down very hard on crayons to color certain areas so that they could paint sunrise/sunset colors over the top of the crayon.

These were a lot of fun to make and are all beautiful!
