Lesson: ROYGBIV Collage

Grade Level: Kindergarten
Art Elements: Color, line
Art Skills: Painting, Cutting, Gluing, Rainbow Order
Making Connections: Science

Students LOVE to listen to the song ROY G BIV by Greg Percy while they paint these. Students are learning about rainbow order by painting the colors of the rainbow in order. Then, they dissect their paintings by cutting different line types. Like a puzzle, students glue the pieces back together. The cutting and gluing is always a challenge, but great practice for the little kinder hands.
