Here's something to do with all of those odd puzzle pieces you've got lying around!

What You Need:
What You Do:

  1. Students will discuss fall scenes and trees.

  2. Students will also discuss using the entire sheets of paper to create a scene.

  3. Then students will draw a fall scene complete with a bare tree.

  4. The teacher will come around to each student and put glue dots around the limbs of the tree.

  5. The students will place the puzzle pieces on the glue.

  6. The puzzle pieces will appear as the leaves on the tree.

  7. These add a nice 3-D effect to their paper and they really do look like fall leaves!

    Have fun!
