Welcome to the School Bus Mystery Picture Using Equations. Bring a little fun into your math lessons. This is a mystery picture that when solved looks like a school bus. Perfect for September or any other month when you want to challenge your students.
Students find the hidden pictures by solving math equations and then coloring the numbered answers. Math equations focused on are mentally adding 10 to a number and adding a one digit number to a two digit number. Although you have to color in 40+ squares, there are only 25 equations to solve. The activities includes the student grid with colors, and finished puzzles for teacher reference.
I have used this activity with students from 1st grade to 3rd grade. Many older students enjoy using it for independent fun work or center activities.
If you enjoy this, please check my store for other mystery pictures including the Cat in the Hat Mystery Picture. You can also find many more worksheets and activities including book reports and glyphs.
Please provide feedback so I know what other items you may be interested in.
All activities are student tested and teacher approved!
