This template works particularly well as a consolidation exercise. In the sample template above, students are provided with a range of factors which help to explain why the Industrial Revolution occurred in the United Kingdom.
Their job is to spot connections between the factors, and piece together the jigsaw in a way that makes sense to them. They can edit each piece with words like "so..." and "because..." to clarify their logic. In addition, they can colour-code each piece of the jigsaw as an extension activity (e.g. blue=political, red=social, green=economic and so on).
