◾Two 25-Sheet class sets (regular and light versions)

Students solve the fraction problems, then use the answers to colour their worksheets based on the colour key. Their sheets combine to create the Earth!

It's simple!
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!

The student buy-in factor is HUGE with these worksheets; they all want to see the finished picture come together! Middle school students love colouring too! This sure beats textbook homework! This would also be a good review before teaching rational functions to high school students.

Imagine if your students were the ones policing homework completion? "Common Jenny! Do your work or we'll have a hole in our picture!"

Leave the picture a secret, or let them know in advance 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 “Colouring by…” worksheets use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match (and encourage quality colouring!). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!

Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!
