Are you studying apples? It’s one of my students’ favorite units.
I try to do a variety of activities that will help them remember the life cycle, so I designed these number puzzles, which are a quick, easy and super-fun way to not only learn the life cycle, but some of that science vocabulary as well.
Students also practice sequencing numbers from 1-10, counting backwards from 10-1, as well as skip count by 2s, 3s, 5s & 10s.
There are 14 different kinds with 65 puzzles in all.
Some are vertical, while others are horizontal.
Pick and choose your favorites to make a collection of choices for your students.
Print, laminate & trim the full color options and use as an independent math or science center.
Use the black & white ones, so that students can color & cut up their own puzzle.
For an interesting “craftivity” have children glue their puzzle to a sheet of construction paper.
Remind them to leave a little bit of a gap between each numbered strip, to create an especially cool mosaic effect.
Completed projects make a cute bulletin board.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy learning about apples and their life cycle, while practicing a variety of standards with a number puzzle.
