Most 3rd graders love to color and these color-by-answer math activities are a great way to include some coloring in your math centers or independent math practice.

This no prep math center resource includes 17 3rd grade math printables where the students will solve equations/answer questions and then color a picture according to the answer.

NOTE: These 3rd grade math partner printables are included in my 3rd Grade Math Centers Bundle. Click here to see the 3rd Grade Math Centers Bundle.

About the No Prep 3rd Grade Color-By-Answer Math Printables:

*17 printables in all (see the math skills below)

*There are two types of Color-by-Answer Math Printables in this resource:

  • The students solve equations in the actual pictures. This is only for the multiplication and division basic facts. The space is limited, so the students could also record their answers (with the equations) on the backs of their papers or on separate pieces of paper. Another option is that they could verbally say their math facts to partners and then color in the spaces after their partners confirm that their answers are correct.
  • The other printables have equations or questions in tables. The students solve each equation or answer each question in the table. They then choose the correct answer from the choices in the table. The answer they choose is assigned a color. They will color the number (assigned to the question or equation) using the color that matches the correct answer.

Accountability Tips

For accountability and to make sure that the students don’t just guess the correct colors, make sur that the students show their work on the backs of the papers or on separate pieces of paper.

Another option is to have them get their answers (and work) checked by you (or partners) and then color in their pictures.

•Math centers or stations

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.
