Problem Solving

We were given a huge puzzle to solve during the week. It was a 500 piece Lord of the Rings jigsaw puzzle. It took us 3 days to finish this as lots of the pieces were the same colour. First we had to sort the pieces into colours. Each group took a colour and tried to find pieces that went together. Then we made a frame of the outside pieces. We all put the pieces we had made together but there were still a lot to add. Emmerson and Cameron showed fantastic persistence and kept trying different pieces until they found the ones that fit.
Success - we finished it!

  1. Wow, that's great that you finished it! I think I put in about 4 pieces, it was huge and a big team effort. Well done!
