Lots of lateral thinking puzzles

Lots of lateral thinking puzzles

I use these every lesson with all of my classes (years 7-11) as ‘bell work’ to get them settled. I’ve found them to be really effective. Most of the kids seem to really enjoy them and they’re always keen to try and work out the answers. Quite entertaining for the teacher too - some of the solutions the kids come up with are hilarious!

Second lesson on Family

Second lesson on Family

This is the class's second lesson on Family (they started 17 weeks late.) This is a detailed resource - to help speed things up each student was given a part of the syllabus to prepare. This is why there are pupils names throughout the worksheet - obviously you would delete these. This should save quite a lot of time in preparation.

Business Support Services Problem Page

Business Support Services Problem Page

An idea I picked up on the forums - a problem page in the form of ‘Dear Delta.’ Businesses write in with their problems and the pupils need to publish some answers. All the problems relate to finding out what support is available - e.g. Business Link, Accountants, Banks etc.
