Full resource document with lesson background and cutouts here.
An excerpt from the document, which contains many variations for different age groups, etc:
1. This exercise must be played in complete silence. No talking.
2. You may not point or signal to other players with your hands in any way.
3. Each player must put together their own circle. No one else may show a player how to do it or do it for them.
4. This is an exercise in giving. You may not take a piece from another player, but you may give your pieces, one at a time, to any other members of your group, and other group members may give pieces to you. You may not place a piece in another person's puzzle; players must complete only their own puzzles. Instead, hand the piece to the other player, or place it beside the other pieces in front of them.
Now you may take the pieces out of your envelope and place them in front of you, colored side up. This is a group task, and you will have 10 minutes to make your circles.
Remember, the task is not finished until each of you at your table has a completed circle in front of you. When all of you have finished, raise your hands.
