Magic Squares – Family Vocab Puzzle

Here is a puzzle I made for practicing/reinforcing family vocabulary. It is based on an activity my district purchased from TPT (unfortunately I cannot find the original source to give credit), but I changed it around to fit my vocabulary better, and also to be all in Spanish. You could also make a puzzle matching Spanish to English, or matching the beginning and end of a sentence (credit to Martina Bex for that idea in her Cinco de Mayo unit).

Instructions:

1. Cut apart the squares to make 12 pieces.

2. Match the description to the family member.

Pardon my handwriting…I usually type everything but I didn’t want to spend 3 hours figuring out how to format text going in different directions.  There is a template available for purchase on TPT here.

    These puzzles are called tarsias and there is a free online program that creates them.
