Sr. Wooly’s seventh activity is a unique take on the jigsaw puzzle. Unlike other activities in this series, this one requires very little explanation. Although there is nothing particularly ground-breaking about this puzzle, I think you’ll find that it’s simple, easy-to-administer, and valuable. I hope you like it.
Activity 7: El Rompecabezas
Also, I have developed extensive resources for this activity. For each of my music videos, I have created six puzzles, which means you have over 80 puzzles that you can print out and use immediately. These resources are only available to subscribers.
Sometimes, if I’m feeling adventurous, I’ll put students in small groups and tell them to organize the puzzle. However, I give them absolutely NO INSTRUCTIONS. They don’t know that they’re supposed to form a grid. Usually, they can still figure out what they’re supposed to do. That said, depending on the class, be prepared for some whining.
If you’re going to take the time to cut up these puzzles, I recommend that you print then out on cardstock and/or laminate them. They’ll get pretty beat up otherwise.
