WORKSHEET & Sample PDF Activity

Sample PDF Activity


  1. Remove all the cards from the box.
  2. If desired, laminate all pieces for durability and trim excess film from edges.
  3. Decide the best way to cut the cards to meet your desired learning objective. Cards can be cut into two, three, or more pieces by looking at the front or the back of the card. The cuts can separate the word from the picture, parts of a word, etc.
  4. Make cuts to separate cards in the desired locations. Make sure that cuts are clean so that the pieces will match up nicely when students are putting the puzzles back together.

Store puzzles in the TREND File ‘n Save System® File Folder Storage Box.
