Instructions: Read the poem below. Look at the lesson picture. Almost everything in the picture is in shades of gray. Why might the sky and clouds look gray instead of blue and white? Use crayons or paint to create your own gray sky and gray clouds.

Where is the bright blue sky?

A soft gray veil now hides it.

A soft gray veil now hides the sun.

Where is the bright green field?

A soft gray cloak now hides it.

Light gray veil and dark gray cloak

Let us color the world in gray.
