I came across this cool website a few weeks back and really wanted to share it with you. Jigsaw Planet, is a site where you can upload a photo/picture and then it scrambles the image into jigsaw pieces. You’re able to select how many pieces you would like for the puzzle, from 35 – 300. The puzzle then displays on the screen and you can use your mouse to put it together.
This is definitely something that you could use in the classroom. Students can upload their own photos, or you could even scan student art work and upload. They are then able to select the number of pieces in their puzzle, and share it with a classmate to put it together again. There are a number of ways the puzzles can be shared including embedding in a blog or website (as I’ve done below), sharing on Facebook or Twitter or sharing by using a direct URL.
So on to the fun….and now for you to have a go. I’ve got a puzzle below that I thought you would like to put back together. When you do you’ll find a cool quote and a photo I took when we used to live up North in Karratha. When you begin moving the first piece of the puzzle you’ll notice that a timer begins at the bottom. I wonder who can complete the puzzle the quickest?? When you’ve put the puzzle together again, feel free to share how long it took you in the comments below 😀 Have fun!!!
If the puzzle isn’t showing, you can play it here.
Thanks for the idea. I applied it on my Hungarian website. I really like it 🙂
