How Do Mystery Pictures Work?

Each Mystery Picture begins with a blank white box and 20 questions to complete. As students fill in the answer to each question, part of the mystery picture is revealed. If the student types the wrong answer, the box will turn pink and they can try again. This makes this resource completely self-checking. Once all the answers are filled in, the picture will be completely revealed.

This digital resource is in Google Sheets format:

  • Made for Google Classroom or Google Drive
  • Self-grading
  • Easy to see that students have completed the questions and have them correct
  • Fun and engaging as students slowly uncover the mystery picture!
