Highly Engaging!! Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! This task ensures individual accountability (every worksheet is different) while harnessing collaborative motivation (Every worksheet is needed for the mosaic). The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom, and your students will be proud!
3 VERSIONS INCLUDED! (.pdf and .docx)
All versions consist of 25 unique worksheets:
◾ One-Step Equations (+,-,×, or ÷)

◾ Multi-Step Equations (distributing, collect like terms, cross multiplying)
CHECK OUT THE PRODUCT PREVIEW to see the range of problem types and know exactly what these worksheets involve!
Students solve 1 or 2-step linear equations, then use the answers to colour their worksheets based on the colour key. Their sheets combine to create the large mosaic image!
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!
Answer-Range Keys are provided for all versions, as well as a completed mosaic template for easy assembly of the image.

The student buy-in factor is HUGE with these worksheets; they all want to see the finished picture come together! High school students love colouring too! This sure beats textbook homework!
Imagine if your students were the ones policing homework completion? "Common Jenny! Do your work or we'll have a hole in our picture!"
Leave the picture a secret or show it for motivation… it’s your call.
Encourage students to check their answers by finding them in the randomized list on their worksheet before they colour each square. This will increase the accuracy of the final picture!
All my “Colouring by…” worksheets use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match (and encourage quality colouring!). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!
Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!
Thanks for checking this out! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
