What a fun way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day while giving your students 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 smiling Saint Patrick's Day Leprechaun!
This file is also available as 8.5x11 sheets. If you are unable to print 11x17, these would be a much better option. In the 8.5x11 size the 100s chart and place value clue sheet are printed separately. Please visit my store to get that file as well as see many other Math Mystery activities for many different seasons, holidays, & themes.
Finally, for just $2.00 more you can get my complete bundle of Leprechaun 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.
