Have you ever used match-up puzzles? If not, you just have to try them in your classroom because your students will love them.

I learned about using match-up puzzles at a training I went to years ago and have used them ever since.

Included in this are 24 match-up puzzles and a recording sheet. There is one full set in color and one full set in black and white.

All you have to do is copy them (I recommend using cardstock), laminate for long-term use, and cut them out. You will need to cut out each puzzle piece, having a total of 48 pieces.

How do I use them in my classroom?

As an engaging activity:
I give each of my students one puzzle piece. You will need to take out the extra match-up puzzles according to how many students are in your class. If you have 20 students, you would use 10 match-up puzzles. If you have an odd number of students, then you as the teacher will also need a puzzle piece. Have everyone stand up and push in their chairs. At the count of 3, say "GO" and everyone walks around the classroom trying to find their matching puzzle piece. You can add music to make it more fun. You can also have the students match up without talking. I have done this as well, and it's hilarious to watch them mime to each other.

As a math center activity
I included 24 match-up puzzles so that this could easily be used as a math center as well. You would put all the puzzle pieces in a baggie, and the student would have to match them up and record their work on the recording sheet. If my students finished early, I would have them create their own puzzles on the back of their sheet.

As a fun game of Concentration
Students play in pairs to find the matching pairs.

I'm sure you could think of even more ways to use match-up puzzles. If you do, please let me know! I would love to hear about them!
