Colouring by Proportions, Fractions, Volume & Surface Area, One Step Equations (24 Sheet Mosaics)
An engaging and fresh collaborative activity! 4 VERSIONS INCLUDED Every student has a different set of problems to which the answers decode their colour-by-number grid. The individual sheets combine to create the whole-class 24-sheet mosaic! The result will seem magical, and look fantastic in your classroom :)

Designed by special request for the CCSS grade 6 curriculum, this mosaic bundle includes 4 versions:
◾ Ratios and Proportional Reasoning (numeric proportions, unit rates and prices, whole-part-percent, percentage word problems, ratio word problems)
◾ Fractions (multiplying and dividing mixed fractions, answers in reduced mixed fraction form)
◾ Volume & Surface Area (Volume of rectangular prisms, Surface area of rectangular and triangular prisms)
◾ One-Step Equations (x + p = q and px = q with positive values)

INCLUDED: (in both .docx and .pdf format)
◾ Full class sets of 24 worksheets (all different!) that combine to create the Chewbacca mosaic
◾ Complete answer keys for all versions, giving the answers for all worksheets (easy assessment!)
◾ Teaching Tips page for smooth implementation in your class
◾ Coloured mosaic guide with coordinates, for easy assembly
◾ Scrambled answers list at the bottom of each student's worksheet, allowing for self-assessment.
◾ List of the order/type of problems uniform on all worksheets

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 collaborative math mosaics use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match, colour darkly, and stick to one colouring medium (i.e. don't mix crayons with markers with pencil crayons...). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!
