⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Karen S. - “Just a good fun activity during the holidays for practicing skills! Great product!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐️ Christine M. - “I put this out as an extra credit assignment for my 8th graders at the end of the square and cube roots unit.  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!”
