Instructions: Progressive Puzzle 8
Allow children the time they need to familiarize themselves with the activity, and then encourage them to begin assembling the animal puzzles. The self-correcting pieces will help them to work by themselves. Start with the two piece puzzle before moving on to the threepiece, then the four, getting to the five-piece puzzle last. Encourage the young learner to compare the puzzle pieces with the pictures on the front and back of the box, to enable them to complete the puzzles by themselves.
Once the puzzles are complete and you have the children’s attention, point to the animals and say their names out loud. Progressing, you can then add some additional information like, “A sheep gives us wool,”, “Milk from a cow gives us yummy cheese.” As a final step of the activity, prompt the children with simple questions while pointing to an animal, “What is this animal with long ears called?”, “What noise does a dog make?”
