Cover the Camel Puzzle

A new week of school means it is time for a new puzzle for the puzzle table. Last week, my students attempted to Cover the Duck.

If you tried last week’s puzzle with your students, you are in for an extra treat. This week’s puzzle, Cover the Camel, uses the EXACT same pieces! You will only need to print out a new puzzle board with the camel shape instead of the duck shape.

This puzzle, like last week’s, is by Tanya Grabarchuk and can be found in Puzzle Box, Volume 3. If you can’t tell by now, I ADORE this series of puzzle books.

The goal of the cover the camel puzzle is to cover the entire shape with the five pieces. Pieces can be rotated or flipped, but you may not overlap the pieces.

This puzzle is a pretty quick solve compared to some of the puzzles that I’ve featured on the puzzle table in the past. It might even be advisable to put out the Cover the Duck puzzle and the Cover the Camel puzzle at the same time.

If you do decide to put them out at the same time, I’d definitely recommend using two different colors of pieces to keep them separated.

Puzzle Solutions

I intentionally do not make answers to the printable math puzzles I share on my blog available online because I strive to provide learning experiences for my students that are non-google-able. I would like other teachers to be able to use these puzzles in their classrooms as well without the solutions being easily found on the Internet.

However, I do recognize that us teachers are busy people and sometimes need to quickly reference an answer key to see if a student has solved a puzzle correctly or to see if they have interpreted the instructions properly.

If you are a teacher who is using these puzzles in your classroom, please send me an email at with information about what you teach and where you teach. I will be happy to forward an answer key to you.
