This is a 6 page document. Pages 1-3 are the puzzle worksheets. I suggest you laminate them and then cut them into large puzzle pieces and put them in an envelope. Pages 4-6 are the student worksheet that has answer to fill in based upon the information on the puzzle sheets.
I use this activity as a group culmination when I am towards the end of my HS unit on Absolute Monarchs. The items depicted are King John I, Magna Carta, Elizabeth I, Henry VIII, Henry IV of France, Isabella & Ferdinand, Louis XIV, Frederick the Great, Catherine the Great and Peter the Great.
I makes 6 sets of puzzles and each student receives a copy of the question sheets (p1-3). In groups, they assemble the puzzle pieces so they can read about each monarch or document and answer the questions on the student question sheet (4-6). The images on the puzzle sheets match the images on the question sheets so student will know which information refers to which monarch. I do activities like this with Absolute Monarchs, Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment. If you like this activity, you will enjoy those as well.
I use this as a culmination at the end of the unit and it provides a good review for students prior to the unit exam. It also serves as a good reminder of who was and was not an absolute monarch. I hope you find this useful.
