This activity appeals to kinesthetic learners and can be used in multiple content areas such as math facts, ELA letter-sound correspondence, social studies and science facts or cause-effect relationships. Write a problem on one section of a puzzle piece and write the answer on the corresponding piece. The student will match questions and answers or cause and effects, or definitions and terms, etc.
Who says assessment has to be boring? As a fun, kinesthetic assessment, create an entire page of facts, terms, etc. using the same puzzle piece template (see page 6). The student will not be able to identify the answers by puzzle shape but will be familiar with the act of putting the pieces together.
You can write a special message on the back of each finished set. When the students complete the puzzles they can tape them together turn them over and read the message, joke, riddle, etc..?
