It is not the most exciting topic...
Don’t do the same old boring worksheets and review - give them the chance to cut, arrange, and solve a puzzle!
The puzzle looks easy, but it’s more challenging than it looks. It will keep your students engaged and give them a fun way to practice what is usually a boring topic.
It also gives your students a chance to collaborate! It’s easier to complete the puzzle in a group!
- The text is read along the outside of the triangle. If you rotate your triangle, you will easily be able to read all of the text right side up.
- For every spot that the triangles match up, the expression and answer must match up.
- When two triangles are touching (share a side), they must be a match.
- There will be expressions and answers that are not used. They will end up along the outer rim of the puzzle with no match.
What should you do about early finishers?
- Give students some blank triangles. Once they have finished the puzzle, they can continue the puzzle with expressions and sums of their own.
