This weekend I took a cool picture of...... well that's for another post. Anyhow, it inspired me to take a similar picture of my work surroundings and will therefore be the subject of this first official post!
This concept could be adapted to any age level and any content area. Here are some examples: learning contractions, matching kindom/phylum/genus, etc., states and capitols for geography, or even story characters and their corresponding literary work. I've also seen this in triangular form where one equilateral triangle is cut into 4 smaller equilateral triangles. The key to a good puzzle, though, is the tricker-edges to throw the students off!!!
Let me know if you've ever done a puzzle like this! Do you have any other suggestions?
