I use this Declaration of Independence Star Puzzle as a way to review the major ideas and people from the document. There are 15 pieces to the puzzle.
I print out the puzzle, then laminate it (so they last longer), and cut it out. I put each of the pieces in their own little bag. Then I pass out each bag to the students. I will use this puzzle periodically throughout my unit over the Declaration of Independence. The first time I will give the students 5-10 minutes to see how much they can do. Then I'll shorten the time as we learn more about it. By the end of my unit I have puzzle races and time the students. I record their times and push them to try and beat them.
It is a fun way for them to review and try and piece the document together and it is great for your tactile learners as well.
