This product includes two sets of 2-partner cards and 1 set of 3-partner cards for easy student grouping.
Just print the cards, laminate for durability, and randomly pass out a set to students. Students must match their card with someone else's in order to find their partner. No two puzzle piece combinations are alike in the same set, so students can find their partner even if they don't know the answer -- just match the edges of the puzzle to their partner's.
2-partner cards include a set of famous scientists (example: "Sally" matches to "Ride") and a set of science tools (example: "stopwatch" matches to a picture of a stopwatch.)
3-partner cards include an assortment of science concepts Examples include tools that measure (matches to triple beam balance, pan balance, and spring scale), constellations (Orion the Hunter, Draco the Dragon, Gemini the Twins), and things in space (planets, stars, asteroids).
