⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Christine M. - I put this out as an extra credit assignment...The students who chose to do it seemed to enjoy the "doodle" part because it was different than a typical color by number task. Thank you!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Micaela F. - “Great resource and activity!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Megan F. - “My kids loved being able to combine their love of art with our current math skill. It was challenging and fun at the same time.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Teachertom (TpT Seller) - “My students loved this and the timing was perfect!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐The Classy Teacher - "I used these with my accelerated 6th grade class. It was definitely challenging for them, but opened the floor for some great discussions and I think helped deepen their understanding of constant of proportionality."
