Colors (Gr. K-1)Have students examine their own clothing to differentiate if it is “dark” or “bright.” Allow children to demonstrate the visibility of bright versus dark colored clothing and reflective materials. A very bright flashlight can be used to simulate a car’s headlights on reflective material. Children should justify why they chose certain colors and analyze their choices after the simulations take place.
