Puzzle Time Lesson Starters - Think Outside the Box - Lateral Thinking Puzzles - Volume 1
A massive collection of 116 puzzles for display on interactive whiteboards! These puzzles encourage lateral thinking and "thinking-outside-the-box" and are not really targeted at any specific year group. Volume 1 contains relatively easy puzzles so they could be used by a variety of age and ability groups from Year 5 all the way up to Year 11 as lesson starters or lesson ends, or a quick break from the rest of the lesson. Have used them for years with my own classes and they are very popular! Have updated them for amore modern look. Ideal for maths lesson as logical thinking is encouraged but could be used by teacher's of any subject. All sorts of puzzles are included involving coins, words, logic, matchsticks, sequences, trick questions, maths magic, physical and shape puzzles. Start the PowerPoint and choose your puzzle ! 116 puzzles mean there are enough for three per week for the whole school academic year! (HINT:- It may be helpful to use the coin and matchstick puzzles without the PowerPoint being run, because then students can drag and move the coins / matchsticks around on the interactive whiteboard! Enjoy..!
