Product Description
This is a puzzle that gives the students a chance to see how well they know their Thanksgiving Day vocabulary! There are 6 puzzle options ranging from easy to difficult. The easiest is a 3x3 square which has 2 versions. The middle is a 4x4 square which has 2 versions. The most difficult is a 5x5 square which also has 2 different versions. The varying levels of difficulty helps to differentiate instruction when using this product in a multi-learning-level classroom. This type of activity helps students with the skill of problem solving. The vocabulary words I have included are:
el pastel de batata sweet potato pie
el maíz corn
la bebidas drinks
tomar la leche to drink milk

el pastel de calabaza pumpkin pie
lavar los platos to wash the dishes

I use this puzzle as a race and the top 3 finishers win prizes. The puzzle must be printed, cut out and the pieces placed into sandwich baggies before they can complete the puzzle, so there is some preparation time required.
I usually make 3 of each level puzzle and I just keep swapping the levels of difficulty and versions as the students finish and want more of a challenge.
