With this activity, students will practice multiplying and dividing exponents while having fun as they color! Students will simplify 12 problems of varying difficulty and then follow the special coloring directions for each problem to reveal a beautifully colored picture. The coloring directions give the students even further opportunities to practice their algebra skills as they must apply math vocabulary (sum, denominator, numerator, exponent, base, etc.) to color the picture correctly. As an added bonus, the final product makes fabulous classroom decor!
This activity is an excellent resource for sub plans, enrichment/reinforcement, early finishers, and extra practice with some fun. It is especially useful for end-of-year practice, spiral review, and motivated practice when students are exhausted from standardized testing or mentally "checked out" before a long break (hello summer!). Teachers and students alike enjoy motivating activities, so engage your students today with this fun color by number activity!
