1. Pair up the children or put them in teams.
2. Tell the groups they will be putting together puzzles.
3. It may help to start with the children taking turns removing a puzzle piece from the box until the pieces have been evenly sorted among the teams.
4. When the pieces have been sorted, let the children begin putting pieces together. Tell them that they can only use the pieces in their own stack. They must ask the other teams to help find pieces that fit theirs.
