The Giver: Color Activity. The Giver: Colorblind Activity.
When the picture is changed from color to black and white, what happens to the object? Is the object as effective or less effective? In black and white, what effect does the object have on the person? In color, what effect does the object have on the person? Write an essay explaining how the color changes the meaning of the object.
With your group, look at the different sets of pictures. Does changing from black and white to color have an effect on all of the objects? Discuss within your group. Then each person decides on a pair of pictures to take back to their desks.
