ACTIVITY 1 –JIGSAW
Take the pieces out and show the child how to connect the blocks by placing the extension into its complementary pair and creating patterns.
Ultimately the child has to fit all the blocks into the square for it to go back to its tray. This is a great exploratory and creative activity.
ACTIVITY 2 – JIGSAW BASED ON COLOUR PATTERNS
Take out all the pieces. Show the child how to sort by colour. Then show them how to solve. So if you have a red, it will be surrounded by green, yellow and blue. No colour touches itself in the block, so children start configuring patterns now on the basis of shape and colour
As children analyse and match the pieces together to make the complete picture, they use sequencing & deduction which develops logical reasoning. The jigsaw blocks give children an insight into geometry, both symmetric & non-symmetric. Inserting the blocks in one another fosters dexterity.
Chunky beautifully dyed wooden jigsaw blocks that lock into one another to form a perfect square. The puzzle also enables the child to create different design patterns. As the child solves the jigsaw and creates advanced patterns, there is an added interest and understanding of geometry.
