There are a variety of ways you can use this packet. For a back to school treat bag, run off the "Welcome" puzzle template. Personalize them with your students' names. Cut up each puzzle and put them in Ziplock Baggies. Choose one of 3 header cards and attach. You can also give them during your apple studies or as an inexpensive gift for birthdays, Valentine's Day etc. A large apple puzzle, to be used as an independent center activity, is also included, as well as a blank grid, to help younger students easily put their puzzles together.
Here's another idea: I printed some up for my grandchildren; personalized the apples, wrote "Have a great school year! We are so proud of you." on a few of the puzzle pieces; cut out the puzzles; tucked the pieces in envelopes and then mailed them. They were thrilled with this little surprise, and enjoyed putting them together to see what they turned out to be.
Moms could tuck them in a lunch box as an "I love you!" note.
If you have a large class, and this is too much cutting for you, run off the black and white apple puzzles and have students color their own. When they are done, have them cut them out and then challenge students to be the first one done putting their apple puzzle together.
