Colouring by Ratios, Christmas Themed Word Problems (3 Mosaic Sizes Included)
An engaging seasonal activity where learning and fun share a one-to-one ratio! 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 mosaic of Charlie Brown! The result will seem magical, and look fantastic in your classroom :) This product includes three mosaic sizes: 16, 20, and 30 worksheet versions.

Great for a variety of grades!

INCLUDED: (in both .docx and .pdf format)
◾ Full class sets of 16, 20, and 30 worksheets (all different!) that combine to create the Charlie Brown Christmas 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.

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

Common Core State Standards: 6.RP.A.1, 6.RP.A.3

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!

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 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!

Feedback, Suggested Improvements, and frontline stories are always welcomed!
