Most students love coloring and these 5th grade color by answer math printables are a great way to include a little coloring in your math centers or independent math practice.

This resource includes 16 5th grade math printables where the students will solve equations/answer questions and then color a picture according to the answer.

About the No-Prep Math Color by Answer Printables:

  • To complete the color by answer printables, the students will answer the questions or solve the equations in the table.
  • They will then choose the 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.
  • There is one printable (place value) that differs. For this activity, the students determine the underlined place value of the numbers inside a picture. Then they color the picture according to a key.

Accountability Tips:

  1. For accountability and to make sure that the students don’t just guess the correct color, make sure the students show their work on the back of the paper or on a separate piece of paper. (In the pictures, there are only 1-2 colors that even have the possibility of being guessed correctly).

  • For the ones that don’t require work shown, I tried to be purposeful about the pictures I chose so the students could not easily guess any of the colors.

  • Another option is to have them get their answers (and work) checked by you (or a partner) and then color in their picture.

The graphics are not seasonal so these math printables can be used year-round and with any pacing guide.

The math printables can be used for:

•Math centers

•Independent practice


•Early finishers
