The kids in your class are probably used to coloring animals but they might not be used to coloring the environments in which animals live. If you want to teach the kids something about animal habitats this is a great exercise. Split the class up into groups and have each group color a large panorama of a landscape. Place different landscapes and habitats in different parts of the room. Provide pictures to the students so that they have a general idea of the appropriate colors. Then cut out the animals the children have been drawing and attach them to the habitats. The finished product is an attractive image of a wildlife scene that can teach the children a great deal about their favorite animals. It will also help to teach them the importance of preserving habitat.
Studies and researches have shown that initial five years of a child are the most critical ones from the point of view of learning. Their capacity to learn new things is at its highest ebb during this period. Children of this age group can be compared to a piece of sponge that is ready to absorb any liquid that it comes across. These are the building years for children and we need to use this period for giving them rock solid foundation that can help them in building their mansion of life upon it in a way that it becomes an example for everyone else to follow.
Although it might seem like a strange teaching method, you can actually use coloring to teach a preschooler important lessons. One of the most basic lessons you will teach them are the names of the colors themselves. When a child is coloring help them to learn their colors by identifying the name of the color in a particular pencil or marker. In front of a group or individual, have a quiz where you ask them to mark specific colors on a blank sheet of paper. You can turn this activity into a little contest by awarding the first child who colors correctly a prize. As children start to learn to write have them write the names of the colors underneath patches of color.
