# Inspiration

My instructional tech team and I always receive grateful comments from our elementary teachers we share seasonal activities.  Most of the activities we shared were using Google slides.  I wanted to challenge myself and create a seasonal activity on Google sheets.  Here are the fruits of my labor.  🙂

## The Activities

I created 3 different versions of a St. Patrick’s Day Google Sheet activity.  Students have to answer age appropriate math questions. Two actions occur when a correct answer is inputted.  First, an image begins to emerge in the blank rectangle.  Second,  the answer cell fills in with a light purple color.  A wrong answer, as shown below, is left white.

Below is the picture for grade 1. The picture is different for each version.

Enjoy!!

Could you share a template for how you made this? I really want to adapt it to my science content!

I don’t have a template. A new design and answers will alter the formatting. Here’s the general flow. 1) Create picture. 2) create problems. 3) Use the function: =value(), to map an answer to a specific color in the picture, 4) Use conditional formatting show a color when an answer is inputted.

I’m here if you have more questions. I’d also love to see how you adapted this format for science.
