Are you looking for interactive materials for your virtual classroom? Have you and your students visited the Historic Capitol in the past?

Love looking at our historic building and need a bit of a break? Spend some time (usually less than 10 minutes) piecing these photos back together. Like any preservation project, you will need to look at all of the angles to get the full picture.
PRO TIPS: Puzzles work best on a computer, but don't worry, you can complete them on your mobile-device with a bit more work. To rotate the pieces of the puzzle, hold down the left mouse button and then click the right mouse button to rotate. Each click rotates the piece 90 degrees.
