Changing background color

How do I change the background color of a "section" of my document. I know I
can go to format and change the document background. Example, when I have a
cover page for a document that needs to have no color and the remaining pages
of the document needs to be in color what can I do? I have placed section
breaks but this doesn't help. What am I doing wrong?

If you are going to print this document use coloured paper or it will cost a
fortune in ink.

The document is for an assignment where I'm building a Webquest requiring it
to have a background color. The coverpage needs to remain white (no fill
color).

On the Layout tab of Page Setup, check the box for "Different first page."
Then, with the insertion point on the first page, View | Header and Footer.
Select the background and delete it.

Note that I'm assuming that your "background" is actually a "printed
watermark." If it's really a "background" (on a Web page), then these
instructions won't apply, as you'll see the background only in Web Layout
view, anyway.
