Harness the motivation of collaborative competition coupled with the assurance of individual accountability! Every worksheet contains a different set of problems, yet all worksheets are needed to create the group mosaic.
Students solve problems involving percent increase or decrease, such as after-tax costs, sales prices, discounts, depreciation of value, retail mark-up, population growth, inflation, etc., then use their answers to decode their colour-by-number grid.
The individual sheets combine to create the Lego character mosaics (Four mosaics, 12 worksheets each).
Split your class up for a fun math colouring contest! You will seem like a magician as you piece the sheets together, and the mosaics will look fantastic in your classroom! :)
(in both .docx and .pdf format)

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!
Leave the heroes 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 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...). Note that while every worksheet has a math problem for all the colours, not every colouring-grid section of the mosaic will require ALL the colours.
