COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL Seeing the World through Colored Glasses Activity 4 Materials Make cardboard frames four inches by eight inches with large open centers. Tape colored cellophane to the frames. Have students pass the frames so every student can use at least four colored frames. Procedure Give the children cardboard frames covered with various colors of cel- lophane, and encourage them to look through the different colors. Dis- cuss how people and items look different through the colors but actually look the same without the colored cellophane. Introduce and explain that the statement “looking at the world through rose-colored glasses” means everything looks bright and hopeful. Consider these questions for discus- sion: How might people use their imagination to change the way a place looked and how they felt about it? Looking through what colors might make a place look safe? Comforting? Peaceful? Relaxing? Suggestions Offer the colored frames when students ask to repeat the activity. Issues insecurity, inability to self-regulate Purpose To increase sense of security, being able to manage different environments. 84 Chapter Seven COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
