I use this Abraham Lincoln Puzzle the major themes of Abraham Lincoln's life and presidency. There are 15 pieces to the puzzle. There are 3 puzzles included with varying difficulties. One has a large picture of Abraham Lincoln that will help those that may struggle to complete the puzzle a little easier. The second one is slightly more challenging and has smaller pictures of Abraham Lincoln in the background. The third puzzle has no pictures and students will complete the puzzle by connecting the terms only! They will love learning without realizing it! :)
I print out the puzzle on card stock or laminate it (so they last longer), and cut it out. I put each of the pieces in their own little bag. Then I pass out each bag to the students. The first time I will give the students 5-10 minutes to see how much they can do. Then I'll shorten the time as we learn more about it. By the end of my unit I have puzzle races and time the students. I record their times and push them to try and beat them.
It is a fun way for them to review and try and piece the document together and it is great for your tactile learners as well.
