- Using the scan-to-print feature on the Poster Maker, enlarge an 8 ½” x 11” copy of a puzzle into a poster for each group. Groups can work on the same puzzle, or each group can work on a different puzzle.
- If students are not familiar with the rules of the puzzle, work through an example as a class. Check for student understanding, then divide students into groups and give each of them a puzzle poster.
- Have groups work together to solve the puzzle. Give each group member a different colored marker to ensure that all students are participating. Once they have successfully solved the puzzle, have each student write a paragraph that explains the logic their group used when coming up with the solution for their puzzle.
- For an added element of fun, make this activity a competition. The group that finishes first doesn’t have homework that night!
