Puzzle Pieces

Have your kids put together a puzzle in small groups. Choosing the correct puzzle piece is not an easy task; sizes, shapes, edges, and colors all have to be looked at. Older kids can be challenged to choose the correct piece without trying it out, but just by recognizing it visually.
