Have you heard about the website Jigsaw Planet? You can upload any image and make it into an online jigsaw puzzle! Try it out above. My message to you is obviously about the HUGE TpT sale starting on Sunday.

How could you use this in your classroom? I was thinking it would serve as a great anticipatory set to a lesson (ex. a picture of a desert when you kick off your Ancient Egypt unit). Or what about the answer to a very tricky question? Maybe even reveal a top secret mission for your students! You could even have it display the objective for your lesson.

My favorite feature about this web tool is the ability to make your jigsaws various levels of difficulty. For younger students you can have fewer pieces to manipulate. You can also change the shape of the pieces! Take a look…

  1. I've got some puzzles on my class website and they are by far the most used item. I think one is something as simple as a picture of me that the kids put back together. I like the idea to use this to introduce a lesson!

  4. Hi Julie,
    My name is Martin and I'm a teacher from Canada. I just started a new website called Resources4teaching where educators can buy and sell lessons and educational resources. We are new and are looking for people to join and put up their materials for sale on our website. We are having an iPad draw for the first 100 Vendors who join and upload at least 1 lesson /resource for sale on our website. There are absolutely no fees to join and you get to keep 70% of the profit. You can visit us at: http://www.resources4teaching.com/blog/
