Is pink your color? Pink is for Blobfish invites students to put on their rose-colored glasses to research the color pink and its effect on mood and tone.

Students will be challenged to think PINK as they investigate everything from obscure pink animals to making their own pretty-in-pink masterpieces inspired by pop artist Andy Warhol. They will mix a multitude of pink hues, analyze a variety of text features, curate a cabinet of pink curiosities, and broaden their understanding of pink’s popularity.
