Need a fun and engaging activity for Columbus Day? One that's not just a coloring sheet, but rather something that gives your students practice with needed ELA grammar skills? This mystery picture is just the product for you!
Following a key, students match a word's part of speech with its representative color. They then color squares to reveal a mystery picture. The parts of speech practiced in this mystery picture are singular and plural nouns, verbs, adjectives, and conjunctions. While designed as a print and go activity for individual student use, the coloring sheet can be projected on a whiteboard as for whole group/small group instruction/participation.
This activity aligns with Common Core Standard ELA L.1 for multiple grades.
