FAMOUS AMERICAN PRESIDENTS AND WOMEN ON JIGSAWS
The pictures depict George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Ike Eisenhower, Barack Obama; Annie Oakley, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Betsy Ross, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Susan B. Anthony.
First a picture is photocopied then the resulting pieces of paper are cut out along the provided lines. Next, the students are to paste or glue the pieces back together on a second, blank sheet of paper.
Further, on the other sheet of paper the students can print or re-write the English (and or Spanish) text.
This should appeal in particular to students who prefer a tactile mode of learning, as it involves hand-eye coordination.
Note that if the jigsaw pieces are not as small as you like, you can take a pencil, ink pen or felt pen to draw extra lines that create smaller pieces.
This is good for example for social studies about presidents, e.g. on Presidents’ Day, women’s rights unites, for cultural activities, and with the Spanish components can also be helpful for ESL/ELL students.
Your students, as have mine, will love being as productively busy as happy honey-bees gathering nectar, having fun working while learning all the better.
