Your young people will see how color sends many different messages in nature:

•How animals, plants, and insects use color to hide, attract, or ward off others.
•Why male and female animals have different types of coloring.
•How some animals change color to blend into their surroundings.

Celia explores how color says many things without actually speaking a word. Crinkleroot illustrates how animals, like snakes, use red, black, and yellow as a warning signal. Your children will learn why male animals are often brightly colored while females are usually drab. They will see that some animals, like chameleons and snow hares, change their coloring to match their environment. Your students will also learn how to make their own nature paints with food coloring, glue, and water.

Teacher’s Guide activities help your students understand:
•What rainbows are made of.
•The significance of color in different cultural traditions.
•How to use the primary colors to make other colors.
