Want a fun way to assess your students understanding of greatest common factors? Look no further. This fun puzzle will get your kids excited about an otherwise dull topic.
Included, you will find 3 sheets.
Directions for students are printed on the first worksheet: Cut out the squares. Complete the puzzle by matching the question side of one square to the side of another square with the correct answer. If a square has a blank side, that side does not have a match. Ignore the letters in the center of the squares for now. Eventually, your teacher will show you how to read the secret message.
The second sheet includes a KEY for you: Start in the top, left corner, and read DOWN each column from left to right. The message reads "Great! Now go relax!" The Slanted pieces form the left border, to distinguish the positions of the G, R, E,
and A, which are duplicate letters.
The third sheet is a 4x4 template to help your students organize the puzzle pieces. When they are sure that the pieces are placed correctly, they can glue or tape the pieces onto the template.
