These dimensional jigsaws go from flat to fabulous in minutes!



Grade Level:

Build a Peacock, Rainbow or Turkey 3-D Jigsaw that will decorate a classroom and enhance hand–eye coordination at the same time.

Create a jigsaw to coordinate with a unit of study (weather), or a holiday (Thanksgiving) or a trip to the zoo (peacocks). Construct a dimensional display that will reinforce hand–eye coordination and create a fun manipulative!

The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.

  1. Die-cut the Jigsaw 3-D Rainbow w/Clouds using construction paper in four colors of the rainbow, and layer them together with adhesive.
  2. Die-cut one white and two blue clouds using construction paper.
  3. Slide the rainbow into the slits in the slightly spaced-apart clouds for a 3-D design (Main Photo).
  4. Discuss weather, types of cloud formations and what produces the colors in a rainbow.
  5. Die-cut one Jigsaw 3-D Peacock body, and use three different colors of construction paper to die-cut the feathers.
  6. Use a circle punch to cut dots to add detail, and adhere to the feathers.
  7. Slide the peacock body into the slits in the slightly-spaced apart feathers for a 3-D design (Main Photo).
  8. Discuss birds, and what feathers were used for in the past and what they are used for today.
  9. Die-cut one Jigsaw 3-D Turkey body, and use four different colors of construction paper to die-cut the feathers.
  10. Die-cut two yellow beaks and two red wattles. Keep track of the small pieces by placing them on the sticky part of a sticky note. (This also makes it easy to add glue before layering them onto the turkey.)
  11. Attach a beak and a wattle to both sides of the turkey body.
  12. Slide the turkey body into the slits in the slightly spaced-apart feathers for a 3-D design (Main Photo).
  13. Discuss Thanksgiving and why the turkey was almost the national bird of the United States.
