What are Hundreds Chart Mystery Picture Activities?
If you’re new to the scene, that’s ok. We can easily explain why we are so incredibly excited to release our Easter edition of these super fun math activities. Hundreds chart mystery picture activities require students to color squares on a hundreds chart following a simple list of numbers. Without even knowing it, children are showing their instant number recognition of numbers to 100.
When they have finished coloring, the mystery picture is revealed! Ta-dah!
The possible images that students can reveal include:
- a rabbit
- 3 patterned Easter eggs
- a chicken
- a basket of eggs
- a chick and an egg.
Other Activity Ideas
Don’t let the fun stop there, why not get children to try and work out what the mystery picture is before they get coloring?
Here are some other ideas you could do in relation to these super fun Easter activities:
- Children pick the rabbit or chicken and write a character profile about that character.
- Children use their chosen character and plan a story about them using a story map template.
- Using a blank hundreds chart, – children can create their own mystery picture with instructions for a family member to complete.
