"Calculate, Colour, Cut & Combine!"
Your WHOLE class will be ENGAGED in an algebra colouring quest!
Every student gets a different worksheet
representing a small piece of the bigger picture. Students complete the math problems, colouring each square according the answer. When the work is done, the coloured sheets are put together to reveal the large pixel image of Mr or Mrs. Spider.
You can purchase the spiders separately if you like:
◾Mrs. Spider - 2 Step Linear Equations
◾Mr. Spider - 1 Step Linear Equations
◾Everything in both .pdf format, and editable .docx format
◾Class Sets of 6 and 24 unique worksheets for both Mr. and Mrs. Spider. The 6-sheet versions have 12 problems per worksheet and follow a colour-by-number style, while the 24-sheet versions have 15 questions per worksheet with each problem placed directly in the squares to be coloured... check out the preview!)
◾Master Answer Keys for both class sizes, showing colour and numeric answer for all worksheets (Use this to help you assemble the big picture!)
◾Each worksheet contains 1-step equations (Mr. Spider) and 2-step linear equations (Mrs. Spider) involving integers, requiring addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division to solve. Some 2-step problems have brackets; students can either distribute, or divide by the number in front first.

The student buy-in factor is HUGE with these worksheets
; they all want to see the finished picture come together!
Imagine if your students were the ones policing homework completion?
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 worksheets 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 stick to one colouring medium. Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!
I’d love and appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories you can share!!
