This is a beautiful 50 piece puzzle representing one of the most well-known structures in the world – the Taj Mahal. Students love working together to build something ‘real’ especially once they have learned a little bit about the building and its story. The puzzle is simple. Students can easily figure out where to place each piece. However, it does require some patience and attention.
I created this puzzle for my unit on construction. I thought it would be a great way to get students thinking about the different elements that come together to create a structure. The puzzles also draw students’ attention to various shapes and to patterns of symmetry.
This pack includes: an introduction, a Taj Mahal information sheet, a finished copy, 1 small puzzle (A4), 1 large puzzle (A3), a basic construction guide and a background sheet.
I hope your kids love it!
