    Question Colour pencil or coloured pencil

    Hi dear teachers!
    Q1. What do you call the thing you colour with when you're too old for crayons? Is it a colour pencil or coloured pencil?
    Q2. What do we say, curve lines or curved lines? For example: (giving an instruction to the child in the art class) Trace the curve lines using black and colour pencils.
    Q3. Which one is correct?
    (a) First recognize the colours as in the flower (There are actually two flowers on the page, one coloured and one blank) then fill the same colours in the flower given.
    (b) First recognize the colours you can see in the flower then fill in the [blank] flower with the same colours.
    Please write if there is one better than mine.
    Q4. Which one is correct?
    (a) Draw a cap then fill the colours of your choice in the cap.
    (b) Draw a cap then fill in the cap with the colour you like most.
    (c) Draw a cap then fill in the cap with the colours of your choice.
    Please write if there is one better than mine.
    Best regards!

    Please write if there is one better than mine. What colour is the flower? Colour [ in] the uncoloured flower to match.

    Draw a cap, then colour it in. You can use one colour or more than one colour.

    If these are instructions for children in a classroom, I would phrase them as above.

    In that case, the simpler the language, the better.
