Thursday was National Puzzle Day. I think the kids in my math class thought I was a little crazy when I broke out the 24 piece puzzles and told them I had a challenge for them. Little did they know there was a catch! I gave them the puzzles and told them they would be completing them upside down. Each puzzle has math facts on the back, and in order to put the puzzle together they had to match each fact to its correct product. The students enjoyed the extra challenge and got some needed practice with their multiplication facts. If this was a challenge your child liked, you can easily recreate it at home. It would be great for the students to make their own too! I got my puzzles at the dollar store.
