## 2. Try Google Sheets Pixel Art

This activity is a fun way to help students practice independently while they create a spooky masterpiece.

You can copy a Google Sheet for each of your students and have them copy it. Students solve the problems and incrementally unlock a Halloween-themed picture. It’s great because it auto-grades, so students get instant feedback on what problems they’re getting right and wrong, so that they can improve.
