Dot "Make a mark and see where it takes you"...

I read The Dot by Peter Reynolds to my 5th graders, and we made these collaborative pieces.

Each of my students created a "Dot" using Anagolous Colors

Analogous color schemes use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. They usually match well and create serene and comfortable designs.
Analogous color schemes are often found in nature and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye.
Make sure you have enough contrast when choosing an analogous color scheme.
Choose one color to dominate, a second to support. The third color is used (along with black, white or gray) as an accent.

Then we added some Common Core Math thinking to the lesson.

My students were asked to figure out how many combinations could we make with our 25 dots?
