The House of Ee'aloro

An absolutely fantastic logic puzzle that has been cleverly put together to force students to collaborate through speaking and listening in order to solve the puzzle - The idea comes from a Japanese recruitment task to assess potential recruits for work. In a similar vein, this resource would serve as a fantastic assessment diagnostic to assess stronger and weaker students, outspoken and shy students etc.. This lesson usually lasts no less than 45 minutes, and with the record held at 43 minutes. Follow the instructions and the tips provided for best results!
