Suggested Materials:
Try and bring some items that have different colors in them. If you have access please develop some fingerprints on some of the items. If you want to use soda cans you can actually cut them apart with a scissors so they lay flat to conserve space. Be creative - this is your training!

#15 yellow, #22 orange, #25 or #29 red, #47 blue, #58 green

Photo log materials - whatever you normally use for logging photographs or plain lined paper will work
