How to Make the Puzzling It Out Kit
These instructions are for making FOUR SETS of jigsaw puzzles, which is the number included in a FireWorks trunk. If you're working with an individual or small group, you may only need one set.
On a color plotter, print 4 copies of
lodgepole pine puzzle
ponderosa pine puzzle
whitebark pine puzzle
Laminate the puzzles. Sort them into 4 sets, each containing a single lodgepole, a ponderosa, and a whitebark pine puzzle. For each set, cut the pieces apart. You're going to have sets A, B, C, and D, so first label each of 4 vanila envelopes with one of those letters. Then label the back of each piece within a given set with the same letter, and put the pieces in the envelope. Label the envelope "Puzzle Set". Each of the four envelopes will contain 3 puzzles (33 pieces).
Place the envelopes in the "Puzzling It Out" kit.
On a color printer, print 1 copy of each puzzle "key":
lodgepole pine key
ponderosa pine key
whitebark pine key
Place the keys in document protectors, then put them in the "Puzzling It Out" kit and place the kit in Teacher Box/Box C.
