Welcome to Children Exploring Colour and
Industry, an interactive website for use by primary school teachers
with 9-11 year olds. This site aims to introduce children to the
importance, value and excitement of colour and the colour industry
through a range of learning activities. Currently, there are 26
activities from which the teacher can select. Each activity is linked
to curriculum statements and covers one or more of the following
- Design and Technology
- Information and Communication
We aim to provide a flexible resource.
Any number of activities can be carried out, and in any order. Topic
routes are suggested, which can also be seen by clicking
on 'routes' at the top of the screen.
Each activity begins with an interactive
screen, the 'gateway' to the classroom activity. This gateway provides
images, animations, information and questions to promote discussion
of a particular topic. This discussion is intended to take about
30 minutes of class time. The children then
carry out an activity without the computer.
