Student Biography Puzzle

Next Steps

Give each of your students a piece of construction paper. Have them create a collage that best describes themselves with illustrations that fill the entire page. Ideas to include are family, hobbies, and favorites. Next, have them cut their paper into 10-15 pieces (show them how to cut curvy lines) and have them put their pieces into a zip lock bag or envelope with their name on it. You can collect all puzzles and randomly pass them out to be assembled by their classmates. You can also put these into a center to be used throughout the school year.

  1. This is a cute idea. I’ll have to remember this one for the beginning of next school year. What a great filler for the first day when everything is so busy. This activity definitely considers the slower workers as you can always collect those finished puzzles and pass them out for students to work on while the slower workers finish their collages. Great back to school activity! Thanks!
