Looking for a multiplying binomials activity that is fun and engaging for your students? This group puzzle will give your Algebra 1 students practice finding the product of two binomials (note: special products are included).
To begin the activity, place students in small groups (the ideal number is 6 to a group, but group size can be modified as needed!). Each group member will work on one of the six puzzles in this resource. Once all six individual puzzles have been completed, students will work together to assemble the larger puzzle. Please see the preview for step-by-step instructions on how to assemble both the individual puzzles and the larger, collaborative puzzle (pictures included!).
The final dimensions of the group puzzle are 21.75” (width) by 19.5” (length), which is perfect for classroom décor! Try hanging the puzzles on bulletin boards, in the hallway, up on the wall, or from the ceiling. They create a great visual for anyone walking into or by your classroom!
