Detective's Puzzle Matching Review
Each Puzzle Matching Review
set includes 16 separate matching puzzle piece sets to review concepts.
Students can match the puzzle pieces "just as they are" for a quick learning activity, or they can follow the review game directions. For the game, students can hide the edges of the long portion of puzzle pieces under the laminated set of review game directions. Each student picks up one short puzzle piece at a time and then pulls out a long portion to match with it. If it is correct then the puzzle pieces will fit together. If it is not correct then the student must slide the long portion under the laminated set of directions so that only the clue is showing again and the cut portion is hidden. Students can take turns. The one who has the most correct matches wins.
My students like to repeat this type of activity later as a quick review for the test. Students can also use them as a quick set of flash cards. One student can call out the clue on the long piece while not showing any of the card to the other student. The other student can use the short puzzle pieces as a word bank.
Domino Path Matching Activities
Students will also complete (12 card) domino style matching activities. The first card will say “Start” and will have the first question. Find the answer to the first question and place it above the start card. The card that has the first answer will also have the second question. Continue to find the matches until you have created the entire “Detective's Path” in order to solve the case. The last card will have the last answer and will also say “Finish”.
Both types of activities can be used for individual students, learning centers, stations, pairs, or as a group activity. All you need to do is print, laminate, and cut the puzzle pieces and clue cards.
