A creative resource to use in the classroom to teach number. Each puzzle starts at a different beginning number (1-11) making children count forwards to 20 and think about the next number, rather than counting from 1 each time. Each puzzle has 10 pieces and reveals an animal at the end.
This activity would work well as:
- A maths rotations,
- An activity for a parent helper to do with a small group of children
- A small group activity
- Part of your fine motor program.
Simply laminate and cut out the cards. I place the pieces for each puzzle in a zip lock bag but you could make it more challenging by having all the pieces in the middle and having students make the puzzles looking at the pictures and the starting numbers. A really rich task for numbers before and after.
