THREE PIECE PUZZLE - A GREAT WOODWORKING AND DRAWING PROJECT FOR MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL TECHNOLOGY STUDENTS
The Three Piece Puzzle project is much more than just another woodworking project. It is a great way to tie in ELA, Math, and Science into your curriculum. The Puzzle pieces are first drawn on SketchUp (fee version) to the actual dimensions. Students use screen-cast to assist with there drawings. It is advised that the students first do the SketchUp Activity on this website first. Once the drawings are complete they layout the puzzle on one long piece of wood, using rulers and squares. Next they head to the shop to cut, drill, mortise, file and sand there puzzles to shape.
