By arranging the pieces of this puzzle it is possible to create a single square.

Challenge your students to persevere to achieve the 'a-ha' feeling.

Hint - only once they beg you, let them know that the small square goes in the middle :)

Also note - I've struggled a little to get this 'just right' in my graphics software so there is a small amount of overlap.

Organisation - get the students to initial each piece (great for when they get dropped on the floor) and store the puzzles in envelopes in desks.
