Colouring by One or Two Step Equations - Cindy Lou Who (Multiple Versions!)
Highly Engaging!! Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom :)

6 EDITIONS INCLUDED! (.pdf and .docx)
Both a One-Step Equations version and a Two-Step Equations version are included in the following class-sizes and styles:
◾30 Worksheets, Questions-in-the-Squares style
◾30 Worksheets, Colour-by-Number style
◾15 Worksheets, Colour-by-Number style

You can also get The Grinch! He's available in a Linear Equations version, and a Sine and Cosine Laws version...
Or, if you want to try a smaller-group holiday collaborative colouring task, check out Colouring by Quadratics - Factorable Holiday Fun (5 Small-Group Versions)

Students solve 1 or 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!

Answer Keys are provided, showing both the colour and numeric solutions for all worksheet problems in the questions-in-the-squares style, and showing the colour and answer-range key for the colour-by-number style versions.

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 sure beats textbook homework!

Imagine if your students were the ones policing homework completion? "Common Jenny! Do your work or we'll have a hole in our picture!"

Leave the picture a secret or show it 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!

Thanks for checking this out! Merry Christmas.
