Number Puzzle 07This resource is aimed at pupils in middle/senior classes or SEN pupils who are working on fractions. It is based on quarters, eighths and halves. The resource features images on a dog theme.

Laminate all of the pages in the resource and cut each one up into eight separate strips. Laminate another piece of A4 card. Adhere a long strip of velcro to the laminated card at the top and the bottom. Adhere a square of velcro to the top and bottom of each of the eight strips. The pupil then uses their knowledge of the sequence of fractions to position the strips correctly using the velcro to reconstruct the dog image.

Alternatively, the pages could be printed and cut into strips. The pupils could then be required to reconstruct the image by sticking the strips in order onto a blank page using glue. (I hope all of this makes sense!)

This is a great way for pupils to demonstrate their conservation of fractions in a fun way. It is also good for fine motor skills in the putting together of the puzzles.
