5 pages (PDF)|Suitable for Grades: 3 - 7

A matching game that helps students to develop their division skills.

Help the bees find their honey with this Polygon Puzzle Division Game.

Simply print out the background template page and laminate it so it can be used over and over again. Then print out the puzzle pieces and cut and laminate them also. Make sure you keep all of the pieces from each set separate, so they don’t get mixed up.

The aim of the game is for students to put the Polygon Puzzle back together by looking at the division question and then placing the answer next to it.

The games start out easier and then move up in complexity as students improve their dividing skills.

TIP: Number the back of each card or stick a different coloured piece of paper on each set so you can easily identify which game each piece belongs to.

Answer sheets have been provided for the students to check their answers.
