Wondering how these puzzles can be used? The opportunities are truly endless! Myself and others have used these puzzles as math centers, stations, or rotations. They’re also great for review and early or fast finishers. They can be used for enrichment, GATE (gifted and talented students), worksheet alternatives, critical thinking skills, test prep, and even partner or small group collaboration.
If you think your students will need more support, I’ve got you covered! This entire article is written with extension and support ideas. And I can honestly say that I’ve had students with special needs finish these puzzles more quickly than their gifted classmates, and I’ve seen the most studious students have a productive struggle when trying these for the first time. BUT the majority of my students fall in love with these puzzles and honestly beg to do them over again once they understand the concept!
I’ve found that doing a puzzle together as a whole class helps the first time. This way students understand that they are looking for 50×7 on the first puzzle piece matches up to 350 on the second puzzle piece.
