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.
Jigsaw puzzles can
bring a new focus to an old lesson.
use a puzzle to introduce a new lesson or concept
hide an important person in history that is part of your lesson
allow students to make puzzles from their own photos to enhance their projects
be used as a teamwork activity in the classroom.
