Here's a winter holiday color-by-number for 5th-7th grade math students. This fun activity has numbers represented by equations. For example, the number 12 might be represented by the square root of 144; 2 squared times 3; 3 to the second power plus 3; 48/4; or just the number 12.
In order for kids to enjoy this activity, they should understand exponents and square roots, as well as order of operations and different ways to represent multiplication and division (dot, x, fraction, slash, division symbol). This activity should not be used for students with trouble seeing small numbers or for children with dyslexia or dysgraphia.
