Mass and Weight Jigsaw Differentiated

Mass and Weight Jigsaw Differentiated

Fully differentiated. This resource comes with 4 puzzles, all identical, but with a varying number of pieces. I have included the images, and text so that you can use them in whichever way you see fit.This activity is a piece of text on mass and weight that has been jumbled up into a puzzle. I have printed and laminated mine, however I often use paper copies with lower achievers so that the can be glued into their books.Some ideas on how to use this resourceHigh achievers - remove 1 or 2 of the text pieces of the puzzle. Students make the puzzle and then have to improvise for the missing piece of text by completing the text using their own knowledge.
