Tips to use these puzzles
1) Copy each type of puzzle on different color paper.
(Example: Mild - Red, Medium - Orange, Spicy -Yellow & Habanero - Green). This makes it easy to organize different puzzles and prevent them from getting mixed up with other puzzles.
2) Laminate the puzzle pieces page before cutting out the pieces. This will allow for the longer life of your puzzle pieces.
3) Have your students cut out puzzle pieces. The puzzle pieces are scrambled so you don’t need to worry about students knowing the answers before they start to solve (and so you don’t need to cut
out an entire class set of puzzle pieces).
