Theses humorous fantasy and mythology illustrations of Christmas will certainly capture your students’ attention! When images are presented with vocabulary words, students more readily remember and use the new words. By using jigsaw puzzles, the learning of vocabulary becomes even more enjoyable. I designed this puzzle set, so there is only one correct match.
