By popular request... here's a multistep linear equations holiday collaborative math mosaic!

See the product preview for sample worksheets and see exactly what this task involves!

Get this product as part of my Holiday Colouring Bundle for huge savings!

Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture!
These mosaics ensure individual accountability (every worksheet is different) while harnessing collaborative motivation (every worksheet is needed for the mosaic). Each worksheet includes 12 equations. Students solve them, then use the answers to decode the colour key. Their sheets combine to create the large mosaic image! The end result looks spectacular hanging up in your classroom, decorating your door, or displayed in the math hallway! Your students will be proud every time they see it!

A Complete Answer Key is provided for every worksheet, as well as an Answer-Range Key for quick assessment. A coloured mosaic guide is also provided, with coordinates, for easy assembly of the image. I like to draw a grid on the board and have student place their completed sections up with magnets until I'm ready to tape it together. Seeing the mosaic magically take shape motivates them to finish their work!

◾.pdf and editable .docx versions of everything
◾Three 25-sheet mosaics (The Grinch, Max, and Cindy Lou Who)
◾Teaching Tips page fro smooth implementation
◾Complete Answer Keys for easy assessment
◾Scrambled answers at the bottom of each worksheets allowing for student self-assessment

All three of the included mosaics consist of 25 unique worksheets involving
◾ Multi-Step Equations (distributing, collect like terms, cross multiplying)
◾ Proportion equations (both simple and multi-step) / Fractional coefficients

It's simple!
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!

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!

Thanks for checking this out!
