One of my favorite things to do to for family fun is to work on a jigsaw puzzle. I used to have a puzzle for students to work on in the back of the room when they finished their work early or got to class a little early. Many students loved it and often came in before school and after to work on the puzzle. So, why not play a puzzle on the Promethean board? The puzzle can be used to accomplish many things.
