Harness the motivating power of collaboration while maintaining individual accountability! Every student’s worksheet is different! Students use their answers to colour-by-number their section of the larger whole-class mosaic! The end result looks great on your wall, and your students will be proud! Whether you are teaching integers for the first time, or need a fun review of the basics, this task offers an engaging way to get TONS of practice out of your students, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing integers.
You can also get Superman by Integer ADDITION and SUBTRACTION (without multiplication and division)
or Batman by Integer MULTIPLICATION and DIVISION (without addition and subtraction)

The student buy-in factor is HUGE with these worksheets; they all want to see the finished picture come together! Leave the picture a secret or show it for motivation… it’s your call.
All my collaborative math mosaics use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match, colour darkly, and stick to one colouring medium (i.e. don't mix crayons with markers with pencil crayons...). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!
