8th grade students divided into groups of boys verses girls to see who would be better at trying to complete SmART Puzzles. The girls attempted Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night and the boys attempted ‘s The Kiss.

SmART Puzzles are a clever spin on the jigsaw featuring overlapping cards that you have to angle just so to create a continuous image. Here’s how it works: smART Puzzles contains 200 3X3-inch cards printed with various sections of a well-known work of art. To add to the challenge, each side is printed with a different painting featuring similar color tones. Your job is to flip, rotate, and alternate which cards are on top to complete the puzzle. Along the way, you’ll build visual perception skills and hand-eye coordination, while gaining a greater appreciation for some of the world’s most beloved works of art.
