This is a great addition to any ocean themed learning.

The puzzles work on division from 2 to 12. There are 11 mats for kids to use. Each mat focuses on one divisor at a time. So you can work on dividing by 2 only on a mat.

The puzzles are a way to change up working on flashcards and give kids that like a hands-on way to learn something fun. Because you have a new puzzle for each divisor you can do a new puzzle each day.

I recommend printing the puzzles on cardstock and laminating them. It will help the puzzles last longer.

Each divisor has a puzzle for it. The puzzles have 12 pieces on them. You can see that mat has the 12 division equations.
