The hardest part of any project is to provide good, quality lessons for all grades. What I suggest is for you to read through all the suggestions and then advance or simplify as necessary! If you have a great idea -- please send it to me.

1. Encourage your students to write Kellogg's with the results from this project or with any questions they might have.
One Kellogg Square
P.O. Box 3599
Battle Creek, MI 49016-3599
2. Cut circles in the colors of froot loops and have your students make a story book about their experience with this project.
3. Visit this site regarding Color Code Writing!
4. Have your students write a paragraph on what flavor would they like to add to the Froot Loops cereal and why.
5. Write a poem, a haiku, a limerick, or acrostic verse about froot loops.
6. Make up a story about the day in the life of a Froot Loop!
7. Take the words Kellogg's Froot Loops Cereal and create as many words as you can.
8. Create "Fruit Poetry" (similes and metaphors) -- GRADES 4+
1. Have your students form patterns using the Froot Loops.
2. Write math word problems on the board for your student's to solve. Example: 3 Red Froot Loops + 6 Yellow Froot Loops = Total Froot Loops. (create harder problems for older students)
3. Using a ruler -- have your students measure out 1 foot. Then have your students line up Froot Loops on that line to figure out how many FL it takes to make 1 foot. Encourage your students to use different measurements and then chart down their data. FOR FUN -- have your students pick items around the room and use FL to measure their length.
4. Create FL necklaces creating a unique pattern.
5. Have your students count out FL in 2's, 5's, 10's, etc.
6. Cut out several LARGE shapes of various colors -- (triangle, circle, squares, trapezoids, etc) and have your student's trace the edges with FL. Have them chart down their counts.
7. Using a BLANK DICE -- COLOR one side RED, One side BLUE, etc -- to represent the colors of FL. This is a game for 2-4 students. Students have all their FL in indivual bowls. One student rolls both dice and transfers that number of colored FL into a bigger bowl. Then the next student rolls the dice and transfers his/her FL, and so on. This game continues until one wins with NO Froot Loops left. (To make sure there is fairness -- each student should start with the same number of FL)
8. Assign currency value to each froot loop (red = 1cent, blue = 5cent, etc) Assign prices to certain items in your class and have your students figure out how many froot loops they would need to purchase that item.
9. Purchase the book "Cereal Math". Boost kids' math skills with these irresistible, hands-on activities using cereal! Students will create a cereal abacus, estimate how many raisins are in "two scoops", use Venn diagrams to sort and classify cereal by attributes, collect and graph data, explore patterns, and more! $10.95 at Gr. K - 2
10. Visit "The Cereal Box Problem" website. Very very good site for OLDER students!
1. Visit the website "Color Matters". You will find many great ideas of science of colors. Warning: I would advise this site use for Jr. High and above.
2. Create a color wheel using the colors from the Froot Loop Box. Trace out circle first. Divide circle into six sections. Fill one section RED, skip a section, Fill in one section with BLUE, skip a section, Fill the last secion with YELLOW. Then go back and fill the section between blue/red with PURPLE. Go back and fill in the section between yellow/red with ORANGE. Fill in the section between yellow/blue with green. (Use cardstock and glue for a lasting color wheel.)
3. Introduce your students to gradients,hues, saturations, and more. Visit the "Make a Splash with Colors" website for ideas.
4. Perform an experiment regarding colors and retaining heat. PDF instructions available here!
5. Discuss how animals see colors differently than people. Visit the "Ask A Biologist" site for a listing of animals and the colors they see. Personally, I would ask my students to give ideas of how they found out what colors animals can see. <g>
6. Discover the colors that appear from a black marker. This one is cool. Here is the site with directions!
7. Cut circled disks from construction paper of the Froot Loops colors. Have your students identify the color of each disk. Then have them match one of their disks with a similar colored object in the room. Also have them identify objects in the room that are a different color than the disk.
8. Bring in nutrition facts from 4 or 5 other various cereals. (make sure at least 1 is Total) Copy all the side panels onto 1 piece of paper per child. Ask your students to answer various questions based on the nutrional value per cereal type. (as an added activity -- have your students bring in the side panel from their FAVORITE cereal and their LEAST favorite cereal and have them compare nutrional values.)
9. 3 Great Online Simple Color Projects. Warning: you need java for 2 of the pages!!
1. Download the data from the Results Page into Excel and create graphs of the project. If you don't have EXCEL, you can print out the data and use an online graphing program called Create A Graph!
2. Using the downloaded data, teach your students how to sort data and create graphs based on state participation.
3. Using Inspiration/Kidspiration, create a color visual learning experience. Free 30 day trial available here -- INSPIRATION   KIDSPIRATION
4. Create PowerPoint/Hyperstudio presentation (including pictures) of your Froot Loop Project!!
5. Visit the sites listed on the LINKS page and create a WebQuest. Or if you are short on time -- visit this webquest already created on COLORS. Want more information on WebQuests? Click HERE!
6. Visit Hot Potatoes and have your students create an ONLINE QUIZ of Froot Loop Information!!
7. Visit and have your students create an Froot Loop HTML word game. If they create a great one -- then send it to me and we will post it on this site.
8. Take a look at all the schools participating and their websites. Click on the teacher's email and ask if their school would consider being epals with you for the rest of the year.
9. Using a digital or regular camera -- make a collage of your Froot Loop Day! Scan your pictures and print them out on T-Shirt transfer paper as an added memory for your kids!!
10. Create a webpage of your Froot Loop Day! Send me the link and we will list it on this website!!
11. Using Paint, Kid Pix, or any other graphics program, create a Froot Loop Picture. (idea provided by S. Huling, McKee Elementary, PA)
