This BIG HUGE PUZZLE measures 14 inches by 14 inches when complete! Students match up standard numerals with their equivalent values in scientific notation to demonstrate understanding of representing numbers that are "big" or "small". Strategically chosen values provide a great way to identify misconceptions (such as adding the number of ZEROS represented by the exponent on the power of 10 rather than considering the number of PLACES the decimal point moves... and the DIRECTION the decimal point moves).
Works great as a pairs activity, an anchoring activity, or even, at this size, as an interactive bulletin board to display in the classroom (which is why I designed it in the first place - to print on card stock, laminate, and velcro the pieces to a bulletin board). This is nice to display even before teaching students about scientific notation to inspire a little curiosity... enjoy!
