Jigsaw is a cooperative learning technique that promotes better learning, improve students’ motivation, increase enjoyment of the learning experience, and increase positive educational outcomes. Just as in a jigsaw puzzle, each piece (student) is essential for the completion and full understanding of the final product. Here is what happened today during the math session in grade 5. Students were studying about classifying triangles according to their sides (equilateral, isosceles, and scalene) and to their angles (acute, obtuse, and right) so I divided students into 6 groups each group is responsible to explain a type of triangles for the whole class. Each group selected a reporter.
Group A reporter was responsible to explain acute triangles.
Group B reporter was responsible to explain obtuse triangles.
Group C reporter was responsible to explain right triangles.
Group D reporter was responsible to explain equilateral triangles.
Group E reporter was responsible to explain isosceles triangles.
Group F reporter was responsible to explain scalene triangles.
Reporters presented their work using power point presentation.
