Hide Images or Links


Making an activity or escape room with hidden pieces can add to the excitement.  I like to hide them so the students have to explore the slide and not just click right away without looking further into what’s on the slide. A brief video on how to is below.

There are 2 ways that I hide an image.  If you have multiple links you want the student to click on you can insert a shape where you want to hide the link. You will click on the paint can and make it transparent and click on the pen beside it and make it transparent this will make the shape “disappear” but still be there. Next, click on the link icon and insert the link.  When students click on the shape the link will appear.

The second way is to make the image a background. To do this I make the slide exactly the way I want then click file, download, png. I insert a new slide, select background, choose image, and choose the picture you just downloaded.  I like this way better if I don’t want the students rearranging items on the slide. After this you will insert a shape, fill(paint can) transparent, border(pen) transparent. Once it is transparent click on link and put the link on it.  This will make the shape invisible but when they click on it, the link will appear

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio

Pixel Art Activities

    If you are looking for students to practice multiple concepts at once with instant feedback these 2 activities would be great. The first activity hast students write the equation of a line given 2 points.  They start by finding the slope, then the y-intercept, and finally writing the equation.  Each piece along the way will color the picture if they are correct.  I like this instant feedback because my student tend to get frustrated if they do all the work and then when I check it we realize their slope was wrong so they have to start at the beginning again. The second activity is on percent, decimals, and fractions.  This activity requires students to convert between the 3 along with making the fractions mixed numbers.  This is great for middle school classes to practice.  My students tend to struggle with which way to move the decimal so this instant feedback helps them check their answers as they go.   Writing Equations of a Line - Baby Yoda Pixel Art Percent, Decimal, Fraction
