Practice graphing in a fun way! This is a 2-pack, differentiated coloring activity for middle school students to practice working with the coordinate plane. Both levels include all four quadrants. This activity can easily be used to differentiate in the same classroom or between different levels of classes!
To use this activity each student will need a coloring page and a problem page. There are two versions of the problem page:
Version A is easier with less negatives and simpler questions.
Version B is slightly harder with more negatives and harder questions (ie: which point does NOT lie on the line, etc).
Both versions result in the same picture, so you can easily differentiate, but only have one picture to check! To complete the activity, students simplify each problem and choose the correct answer from the choices to the right of the problem. Each answer choice has a corresponding color. Students color each space on the coloring page with that problem number the color that corresponds to the correct answer.
Please note that several problems have the same color as the correct answer. I did this, so that teachers who didn’t have all types of exotic crayons could still use this activity. So, tell your students not to be alarmed if they get blue, purple, etc. for more than one problem.
