Product Description
Each PowerPoint slide has four sides, each side has either a vocabulary word or a definition.

Print the PowerPoint Presentation 6 slides per page and cut them into rectangular pieces. Place the pieces into a plastic bag. If you want to save the game pieces, you can laminate the pieces or glue onto index cards.

Give each group of students a plastic bag with the 12 paper pieces. Tell them to try and match 1 side of a piece with 1 side of a different piece. Continue to do so, until all 12 pieces match into a rectangle.

The words that compose the border of the rectangle will not "match" any other piece. Those sides of the pieces contain distraction words. I made the distraction words fairly obvious.

I also the same game without any distraction words, in lieu these pieces have a border for the perimeter of the rectangle. This is a good start to Tarsia puzzles. Once students get the hang of Tarsia puzzles, they can play puzzles with more pieces.

This is a short activity that should take around 5-10 minutes. You can use as an inquiry piece before you teach the content or as an exit ticket.
