Description

Students gain so many skills from using jigsaw puzzles, but this fun interactive activity is also a great online learning experience. Just like a regular jigsaw, this digital game has all the cognitive and developmental benefits as its traditional counterpart with a modern twist.

Using Google Slides, students are treated to 4 x 20 piece puzzles that develop a growth mindset and nurture positive character traits. Each inspirational quote drives home a positive message that encourage kindness and friendship.

Each slide has a designated workspace with pieces around the outside that students can easily move in place. Whether using a keyboard and mouse or touchscreen, kids are developing fine motor skills and improving their ability to concentrate to complete a task.

No more incomplete puzzles! If students accidentally delete a piece, they can simply download another copy of the jigsaw.

It's easy and efficient to save a copy of the file to your own Google Drive and assign the link to students via Google Classroom, email, or another online learning platform.

Benefits of Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw puzzles may be seen as a filler activity but there are in fact many impressive reasons why they should be used in the classroom regularly. Benefits include:

  • exercises the left and right sides of the brain simultaneously
  • improves short-term memory
  • promotes visual-spatial reasoning
  • improves concentration
  • enhances problem solving skills and perseverance
  • a meditative activity that relieves stress
  • reduces the chance of developing memory loss and dementia
  • increases self-esteem as children feel a sense of achievement

Benefits of using Online Puzzles

Digital puzzles are becoming more popular as students need to extend their learning to home. Some of the great reasons to go digital include:

  • can be used in more places
  • not as much space is needed to play or store
  • less mess and clean up time
  • can be assigned as a fun homework assignment
  • enhances computer skills
  • multiple students can simultaneously use the same puzzle
