Bring to life the traditional practice class or homework assignment with some global competency and diversity! While your students practice understanding the names of the quadrants, they can learn about the artist Annie Lee.
Person Puzzles are designed to highlight individuals with diverse backgrounds who have made significant contributions to our world. In my experience, our students are underexposed and unaware of many significant (historical or current) figures and this is a an easy way a math teacher can throw some interdisciplinary content without sacrificing their math!
Students enjoy the person puzzles because they innately like figuring out these type of facts and enjoy learning about someone interesting and different! I typically use Person Puzzles as timed warm-ups which allows me to share a little about the person's background before my daily lesson. I can also drop some college readiness info like majors, degrees and careers!
This is a 2 page assignment with an answer key. Works great for warm-ups and homework! Unlike the majority of the items in my store, this is not a math project.
