Student of ALL ages love to draw and color… especially in Math Class!
Math Mugshots are a GREAT way to review math concepts while providing some “color” to math class.
You can use this activity with your 7th graders the first week of school to review common core concepts learned in 6th grade. It will help them to refresh their memories after their long summer break! You can also use it as a review at the end of the 6th grade year.
