Here is a worksheet for students to complete to help practice their math skills while coloring pictures at the same time. There are a total of 6 pictures related to things associated with Mexico (Day of the Dead skull, mariachi, typical clothes, pyramid, small town, and a piñata). The math skills are practicing addition and subtraction with units of tens (47+16, 61-20, 80+18, etc.). Each picture also has a short paragraph that students can decode using the alphabet table so they can read a short description about the picture/item.
I have included two different versions for students to complete depending on how teachers want to use them. An easy one where the students don't have to complete any math problems and they simply use the corresponding color/number table to color in the boxes of the picture and an alphabet table to decode the paragraph message. This is a simpler version where students get practice using numbers and finding them in the grid. Or there is another more intermediate version that includes about 40 math problems that students have to complete in order to know what color to use for the pictures.
I have included the original Excel document that I used to complete the pictures and the math problems, but I have also included a Word version which might make it easier to print for the teachers. There is also an answer key for the teachers that includes the pictures colored in and the answers to all of the math problems.
I am always open to comments or suggestions from others for things to create or to modify so please let me know if you have any ideas and I would be more than happy to help.
