    Does anyone have any good ideas to use paint cards (like the little ones you pick up at Walmart, Home Depot) with writing lessons?

    What color is strength and why?
    What shade takes you far away and why?
    which color shows history, and why?

    Write a paragraph about a color inventer who has a little color mixing shop where something happens causing him to make the colour you have received at your desk.

    Write a letter to the color explaining what joy it brings to your life, and where you see similar colours in the world

    what sort of animal is coloured the same color as this paint chip? How did they get that color?

    etc.

    I was thinking about having some of my groups create posters using these for an activity to go along with a synonym lesson. For some of my other groups, I thought it would be a good activity to go with adjectives....for example, on a paint chip, they could write 5 adjectives that would correlate to a word(that I choose) they pull from a hat, one on each shade. Im still working on that one though! One other idea I had was using them as a tool for descriptive writing - they could brainstorm descriptive words on them for a particular piece of writing they are working on....again, still working on these ideas! ;)
