This is to get young people's minds working 'out of the box' with these mind-boggling questions.
I use this resource with the young people I work with and it is a great ice breaker or general activity. Enjoy.
The Powerpoint has got the answers in the note section of each slide, however, some are incorrect. You can get these off the original lateral thinking quizzes as I put them all together using another users' quizzes.

These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
