Product Description
Enclosed are three pages of puzzle pieces and three pages of worksheets. I use this as a summary activity for my unit on Post WW2 Independence Movements.

You will need to cut the puzzle pieces up and put them in a ziplock bag or envelope. Have your students remove the pieces and use the information on the pieces to match them with another pieces. Students will need to match the country with two pieces. Some pieces will be a description or a leader or an event in the nation's independence movement. For example, "Bangladesh" will match with pieces stating "East Pakistan" and "Broke away from Pakistan in 1972". Once students have completed making a chain of three pieces properly connected, they will fill in the blank worksheet with the information from the puzzle pieces.

Each puzzle piece on your master sheet is cut differently so students can use the puzzle pieces as a self check or if they don't know the information, the shapes will help them gain the answers. Your answer key are the puzzle pieces. If they don't fit together, then it is incorrect.

When completed, students blank worksheets will match the puzzles. Students will fill in the worksheet using the puzzles.

This is a fun group activity that my students have enjoyed. I use it as a post assessment, not for a grade, but just a post diagnostic to informally measure student knowledge.
