Welcome to the April (Arbor and Earth Day) Mystery Pictures and Hidden Messages. Bring a little fun into your math lessons. This is a mystery picture set that when solved looks like three different April icons including an umbrella with rain, We Love Trees, and a globe. Perfect for when you want to challenge your students.
Students find the hidden pictures by following the coordinate points given and coloring in the correct answer squares on the graph. A special bonus is that each puzzle has a hidden message. After discovering the hidden pictures, students write the letters in specified colored boxes to get a secret message. BONUS FUN! The activities includes the student grid, coordinate points with colors, and finished puzzles for teacher reference.
I have used this activity with students from 3rd grade to 8th grade. Many older students enjoy using it for independent fun work or center activities.
If you enjoy this, please check my store for other mystery pictures. You can also find many more worksheets and activities including book reports and glyphs.
Please provide feedback so I know what other items you may be interested in.
All activities are student tested and teacher approved!
