Harness the motivating power of collaboration while maintaining individual accountability! Every student’s worksheet is different! Two versions (both 30 sheet mosaics) are included: 100-question-per-worksheet version, and a quicker 12-question colour-by-number style version. You can mix worksheets from both versions, as the colouring grids are the same size.
Students use their answers to colour 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 and subtracting integers.
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!

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... except perhaps for black. That's pretty universal.). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!
