The puzzle doesn’t work if you increase the size, the top needs a piece that goes out on each side…

Hi Grace,
Thank you for your comment. The puzzle is intended to be three pieces wide, with the middle row repeated to accommodate for extra students. However; if you would still like to widen the top row of the puzzle, print out the ‘middle left’ puzzle piece and rotate it. It can then be inserted into the top row of the puzzle . Then, if you print out another ‘middle’ puzzle piece, this will connect underneath the new piece you have made.
If you need any additional support, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Kind regards,
– Steph
