Pre-entry: N1/M6.4, N1/M7.3, N1/M7.7, N1/M8.5, N1/M8.9

Numeracy: N1/E1.2, N1/E1.3

Level: M6, M7, M8, E1

Resource type: Tarsia jigsaw, Warm-up

A Simple and straightforward 16 piece jigsaw that makes a great group activity. Cardinal and ordinal numbers are matched with number words to form a triangle. This puzzle constructs sequentially, i.e. the word ‘one’ is at the triangle’s apex, matching with 1, then two, underneath it and so on up to 10 in cardinals and 8th in ordinals (this makes it a lot easier for preEntry learners to see how the triangle is constructed).
Andrea suggests: “Distribute the pieces at random around the group (sitting round a table).
