Tarsia Puzzle for Circuit Symbols - NEW AQA GCSE 9-1

Tarsia Puzzle for Circuit Symbols - NEW AQA GCSE 9-1

I made this Tarsia puzzle as I couldn't find any online with the new updated symbols that students need to know for the new Physics AQA GCSEs. Tried this out with my students and they had great fun solving it together in their groups! Great activity for a starter or plenary, or a way to help them to revise the symbols.
