What an exciting way to channel your students' interest in the Winter or Summer Olympics into important mathematics practice!
In this activity the students will complete subtraction questions and then color their answer with a corresponding color. It is like a color by numbers only using subtracting and a 100s chart.
This bundle comes with four different subtraction sheets making it useful for students of varying ability levels:
1) Subtraction questions that do not require regrouping (e.g. 47-12) which are written vertically.
2) Subtraction questions that do not require regrouping which are written horizontally (to encourage mental math).
3) Subtraction questions that do require regrouping (e.g. 61-27) which are written vertically.
4) Subtraction questions that do require regrouping which are written horizontally (to encourage mental math).
All 4 variation of this exercise come with an answer key.
The final image your students will create is a burning Olympic torch!
This file is also available as an 11x17 file so that one sheet can contain both the place value clues and the 100s chart. Please visit my store to get that file as well as see many more Math Mystery Pictures for various themes, seasons, & holidays.
Finally, for just $2.00 more you can get my complete bundle of Olympic Torch mystery pictures, which includes addition, place value, number locating, subtraction, and multiplication. This would be a great way to include multi-age and multi-ability classrooms. Everyone is working on the same image but solving problems at their level! Again it is available in my store.
