An engaging and fresh collaborative activity! 4 VERSIONS INCLUDED
Every student has a different set of problems to which the answers decode their colour-by-number grid. The individual sheets combine to create the whole-class 24-sheet mosaic! The result will seem magical, and look fantastic in your classroom :)
Designed by special request for the CCSS grade 6 curriculum

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 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 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...). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!
If your class size doesn’t line up with 24, no worries! If you have a small class, in my experience, students are eager to do additional sheets to complete the picture! (Or you could use the answer key to have students colour the missing pieces quickly.) If your class is large, you could hand out duplicate sheets to those less likely to appreciate the colouring component of the task ;)
Feedback, Suggested Improvements, and frontline stories are always welcomed!
I will certainly update the product if you feel the questions could better target your audience!
