Your students will gobble up this engaging activity!
The mosaic consists of 16 worksheets (each one unique!) involving sin, cos, and tan ratios for missing sides and angles. Students' sheets combine to create the turkey mosaic. Two versions are included, one with simplified colours to accommodate basic sets of pencil crayons etc. (The more colourful version still sticks to colours found in the Crayola 24-pack of coloured pencils.)
The collaborative motivation is huge!
The answers are given in a randomized list at the bottom of each sheet, allowing students to monitor their own work. Complete answer keys are provided for you, as well as a Teaching Tips page for smooth implementation!
This product comes in both .pdf and .docx format. All files are included in the zip folder.

Students solve the trig problems, then use the answers to colour their worksheets based on the colour key.
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!
Both a visual answer key, showing the completed mosaic with labelled coordinates (to help you assemble the picture from the combined worksheets), and a numeric answer key for each individual worksheet are provided.
Leave the final image a secret, or let them know in advance for motivation… it’s your call!
Encourage students to check their answers by finding them in the randomized list on their worksheet before they colour each square. This will increase the accuracy of the final picture!
All my “Colouring by…” worksheets use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match (and encourage quality colouring!). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!
Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!
