These are blank versions of the student grouping puzzles that some of you have asked for.
Write or print facts onto each puzzle piece. Each puzzle should have a different focus. For example, one puzzle could be prime numbers, one puzzle even numbers, and the last puzzle odd numbers. Another example is to have one puzzle be parts of a plant cell and a second puzzle be parts of an animal cell.
Use them in any way that you need based on your grade level and content.
Randomly distribute puzzle pieces to each individual student or pairs of students based on your need and class size. . Students need to work together to put the puzzle pieces together.
This is a great way to randomly group students for cooperative group activities.
You may want to laminate the puzzles so that you can use them over and over again. If you have pdf expert you could type directly onto the sheets and print them out.
See the attached example for more ideas!
Thanks, and I hope you enjoy them!
