Ideas: This puzzle is great for students to do in pairs or small groups. It will help with character recognition and order. Students can use the guide to assist them to find the kana as this puzzle will be more challenging in parts with kana but no graphics. It encourages students to focus on the shapes and order of the kana.

Groups of students can be timed in how long it takes them to complete the puzzle and this can be used as a rotational activity and a record kept of the completion times. This can be used to motivate students to learn the order of the hiragana and have some competition. Pre-teaching information about the cultural themes in the puzzle will give students more chance to use the target language while completing the puzzle. eg: だるまはどこですか?
