These table puzzles (this is the collection of all 64 puzzles) are designed for teachers who want to help their students increase their achievement on the Texas 8th grade science STAAR test.
The puzzles should be laminated (245 pages, yikes!) and cut apart into what I call "table puzzles" in my classroom. The students match the pieces together (you've cut them apart after laminating them.) Each puzzle has instructions and an answer key, and is designed so students can independently get started working on them.
These puzzles can be stored in a manila envelope, and the file you download includes a title for attaching to the manila envelope. Students who need help with a particular science standard can sit at the table, put together the puzzle and check it with the answer key. Teachers should be or could be nearby to answer questions or guide the student's learning.
