A simple problem solving activity that I have used with groups of children - and for an interview! Works really well - children extended their thinking too for bigger mazes. This is an adaptation of the Maise’s Maze problem. I have adapted it now as I’m teaching EYFS…so watch this space ...if it works I shall put the adapted version up here too! Beanstalk image is also displayed in a Word doc for those who can't open the notebook activity.
