Division PuzzleI came across this idea on superteacherworksheets.com, although I’m sure many others have also used or made something similar.  It’s quite straightforward, pupils complete 9 calculations, find the answers on the puzzle pieces, and put them in the same order as the questions to make a picture! So I made this one for the decimal division that one of my groups is currently working on.

I don’t give the scissors out until the questions have been attempted (as otherwise pupils can easily put the puzzle together!)  The bonus of having the pieces with the answers on is that pupils can self-check as they are working.  There is no reason for the cutting and putting together of the puzzle, other than it is a motivating factor to complete all the questions, giving the pupils well needed practice!
