Self-checking with Immediate Feedback!

Questions are in a multiple-choice format and students have the opportunity to complete the color-by-code mystery picture included with each activity. Students use the color next to each answer choice they chose to color the grid. They locate the number of the problem on the mystery picture. Then, they color the square to match the color beside the answer choice they circled. When students color the mystery picture, they’ll know AND you’ll know if they answered all of the questions correctly.


⭐You can also choose to make the coloring page optional. Students do not need the color-by-code mystery picture page to complete each activity.


The best part?

This resource comes in both a print and digital format to best fit the needs of your classroom and students. You can choose to print each activity for students or individually assign them through Google Classroom or your school’s online learning management system.

Teachers like you said:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My students really enjoyed using these mystery pictures to review and work on skills that we had been learning. The short reading passages, questions, and pictures to check their work was something that kept them engaged! They seemed to do better on this activity than on other activities practicing the same skills. –Francis B.


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My students loved this activity! The stories are very engaging and the picture that they have to color afterward makes it very fun for them! Highly recommend this resource! –Jessica M.


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I love that these are also available in digital form. My kiddos have really enjoyed doing mystery pixel pictures while learning. It’s a great resource that I can assign in google classroom or print for my more “hands-on” learners. –Brooke W.
