Addition and Subtraction Math Mural: Your students will have a blast working together to create this fun hidden picture mural using their math and coloring skills. This product contains 30 mystery pictures that combine to form a 5.5 foot by 2 foot bugs and blooms theme mural of whimsical flowers, ladybugs, butterflies, caterpillars, bees and birds! This is a simple and fun activity that has a big wow factor when complete.
If you don’t have 30 students in your class you can make a smaller mural. Just print out one mystery picture for each student. The mural still looks great even if it is smaller.
This activity suits many grade and skill levels. There are 6 different sets of math questions that you can choose from and there is the option to create your own questions so you can customize the activity to what you are currently working on with your class. The question sets include: a number match which is great for Kindergarten, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and three number equations. You can choose one question set for the whole class to use or give students different questions depending on their skill level.
When students have completed their piece of the mystery picture mural, the teacher can assemble the mural and hang it on a bulletin board or a wall. Instructions for how to assemble the mural are included.
When the mural is complete, you can extend this activity by having students count and graph the different bugs in the mural. A “Bug Hunt” count and graph worksheet is provided to record the data.
Please view the "Preview" for a closer look at the mural and worksheets.
