Instructional Ideas

  • Incorporate the puzzles into a preliminary study of the layers of Earth
  • Check each learner's first puzzle and use the score as a formative assessment
Classroom Considerations

  • Pointers on the diagrams showing each layer are a little small; consider having pupils increase the zoom on their screens for easier viewing
  • Plan time for each student to have computer access
Pros

  • The interactive takes the place of flashcards as a means of associating each layer with its name
  • Having to observe their block placement within each grid makes scholars much more likely to remember the key components of the content
Cons

  • None
