I found these giant puzzle pieces at Oriental Trading Post and knew I had to use them because we have been talking about our uniqueness. I also wanted everyone to see how everyone’s special talents and abilities allow us to work together and become something great.
The girls worked on these for several sessions, making sure they got their puzzle piece done.
When the girls were done, I had icebreaker questions that they could pass around and answer as their peers worked. Even if they weren’t coloring, everyone was busy.
It took me longer than I would like to admit to put their puzzle pieces up on my wall. However, I sure did surprise them when I taped them all together and hung them on the wall in my office. They love the masterpiece they all helped to create. This is a perfect example of being a part of something bigger than yourself.
I love how they all look so original, and how cute is the American flag?!
I can’t wait to start creating projects like this with my students this upcoming year!
