Yesterday I found these wide popsticks at The Reject Shop – $2 for a pack of 50!
Today we used them to make some simple jigsaw puzzles.*
Normal popsticks would work just as well.
In the classroom students could:
-Draw a character or scene from a book
-Write out spelling words
-Write out times tables
-Draw and label a diagram for science (eg: life cycle, cross section, experiment)
*Tip – Sticky tape the popsticks to the table when drawing. Makes it MUCH easier!
To make self checking jigsaws, add a picture or line design to the jigsaw. If they match up, the student knows they have put the puzzle together correctly!
