I know that I’ve posted a few Magic Squares centers on this blog, but I’ve never really understood how to make the most of them. Check out this post from Hojos Teaching Adventures! She gives you lots of information about organizing magic square puzzles and making them effective for your students, including differentiation for higher learners.
I like this library center because it combines the physical movement that draws students to jigsaw puzzles, but it adds a little more brain activity.
You can start the fun with this free winter magic square printable from Teachers Pay Teachers.
And here is a free template to create your own Magic Square puzzle! (By the way, if you create a cool Magic Square puzzle for the library, I hope you’ll sell it on TPT so the rest of us can buy it from you!)
