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:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I used these and the other seasonal mystery pictures with my 4th graders. OMG! They loved to work these out as a review tool before assessments. However, they would get so upset when their picture was wrong because they rushed. I love the many lessons that were taught using these pages. I will continue to use these in the years to come. –Erin G.


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My students loved using this in the classroom! This was something that was able to fit in well with the curriculum at the time when I did use it. It was also nice because it was the end of the quarter and grades were already in and I had a substitute teacher use this with them. It was very nice to be able to see my students engaged through their work when I came back. –Maura M.


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I love, love, love this resource! I love the way it focuses on one skill and the articles are very engaging. The students loved figuring out what the mystery picture was. I also like that there are different ones for different seasons. I will be getting all of them! –Jill B.


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ So glad this was made digital!! Great activities for hard-to-teach topics. The kiddos love seeing the picture develop as they fill in the answers. An advantage to the digital version is that, if the picture looks weird, they are motivated to check their work to figure out where the mistakes are. They really want to see the correct picture! –Denise M.
