Area and Circumference of Circles Digital Pixel Art | Composite Figures


Engage your students with these pixel art activities to practice calculating the area and circumference of circles and composite figures! Some problems also involve finding the radius and diameter given the area or circumference of the circles. It's great as a sub plan, review lesson or independent practice!

Why you'll love this

Each activity is a self-checking Google Sheet. The images (panda and bubble tea) are versatile, so they can really be used at any time in the school year. Students practice a series of problems and get immediate feedback as they go. Correct answers turn green and incorrect answers stay red. As students type in correct answers, a mystery picture appears. The Google Sheets are all self checking & digital, so it can easily be assigned through Google Classroom or any online learning platform.

There's no prep required. This is great for virtual or in-person learning!

A printable PDF version of the questions has been added so students can solve the problems and show their work on paper prior to entering the answers on the pixel art google sheets. (This part of the activity is optional, some teachers may choose to use the pixel art google sheet directly without this PDF).
