This was such a wonderful project for the first days of schools. It allows students to color, cut and learn about their classmates. We start with a blank 9 piece puzzle. In the middle piece they write their name. In the eight other pieces they draw things about themselves, for example, their favorite food, movie, place, cartoon, toy, or what they want to be when they grow up. When they have finished coloring every piece they can cut on the black lines. When students are finished cutting out all of the pieces they can go find a classmate and exchange puzzles!!! They really enjoyed this project and learning about each other.
