This can be a warm up activity for a creative writing course (or unit). This can also be a warm up for descriptive writing. The teacher will assign a student a color. For example, "blue." The student can interpret the color however the student wishes. The student is instructed to create a scene, paragraph, setting, that gives off the feeling of "blue." For example, "blue" is usually described as the mood of sad, or calm. The student will interpret the color, then write a scene, paragraph or setting that indicates that color.

This activity can be expanded outside of colors -- for example, a teacher can give the students a word (for a vocabulary exercise). For example, the teacher can assign the students the word "benign" as a vocabulary word. This activity can then happen with the students constructing a scene, paragraph, or setting attempting to create the feeling of "benign."
