The Color Tablets (Box 3)


To assist the child in identifying color and to visually discriminate different shades of colors.

Box 3 has nine separate compartments representing each of the colors in Box 2, with the exception of black & white. In each compartment, the tablets range from darkest to lightest.


  1. Prerequisite - your child must understand the vocabulary "dark" and "lighter" to complete this activity.
  2. Introduce the child to the Color Box 3

  6. Place the darkest tablet to the left of the table, and the lightest tablet to the right on the table. Proceed to grade the tablets from darkest to lightest.
