Colouring by One and Two Step Equations - Remembrance Day (25-Worksheet Mosaic)
Help students to Remember this November as they collaboratively complete the Poppy mosaic. Each student's worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom :)

Also check out the Remembrance Day Poppy mosaic in a :
more basic colour-by-number and number range bundle (5 versions) .

Students solve 1 and 2-step linear equations, then use the answers to colour their worksheets based on the colour key. Their sheets combine to create the large mosaic image!

It's simple!
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!

INCLUDED (.pdf and .docx files):
• Full class set of 25 worksheets (all different!) that combine to create the Poppy Mosaic
• Complete Answer Key for all worksheets making assessment a breeze
• Every worksheet has a randomized answer list at the bottom so students can self-assess their work before colouring
• Coloured image of the mosaic with coordinates, guiding you to easy assembly

The student buy-in factor is HUGE with these worksheets; they all want to see the finished picture come together! High school students love colouring too! This will be a nice change in pace from textbook homework.

Leave the picture a secret or show the answer key 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!

If your class size doesn’t line up with 25, no worries! You could hand out some duplicate worksheets if you have a large class (perhaps to a student less likely to enjoy the colouring aspect of this task!) or, you could have some students work pairs (differentiated learning). If you have a small class, in my experience, students are eager to do additional sheets to complete the picture! (Or you could use the answer key to fill in the missing pieces quickly.)

Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!

Thanks for checking this out!
