What educators are saying

This is a fantastic resource! My students were instantly engaged with the content of the slides. Great for brain breaks in long distance learning sessions. Thanks!
I used these to fill in a little extra time during 9 CP. They were so into it! Great purchase! I will most likely purchase the other volumes as well.


Entertain and challenge your teens with this compelling collection of brain-twisting presentation slides in PDF & Google Slides format. There are many different ways you might want to use these 76 slides (38 questions + 38 answer key slides) in your classroom, including:

1. Use as a routine bell-ringer activity to begin class one day each week. I use these as Brain Teaser Tuesdays (I enjoy alliteration), but they’ll work great any day of the week.

2. Use them as a sponge activity to soak up those occasional last few minutes of a class period when a daily lesson wraps up more quickly than you planned.

3. Use them as part of an ongoing team activity/contest that runs a full nine-week quarter. More details included in the download.

4. Use the slides as a reward for classes that hit certain benchmarks or goals.

There are 38 questions (each with a separate attractively designed answer slide) in this packet of PDF & Google Drive slides, allowing you to use two questions per weekly session or one question two times a week in a semester. Most semesters run 18 weeks but I threw in a couple of extra questions just in case there’s one or two you don’t like/want to skip.

However you decide to use these slides, I hope they find a place in your teacher’s toolbox of activities. Students enjoy these lighter activities that provide a fun way to help develop word sense, logic, and lateral thinking.

PLEASE NOTE: These Brain Teaser materials are also included in my money-saving FULL-YEAR H.S. BELL RINGER BUNDLE VOL. 2. No need to purchase this item if you already have the Vol. 2 bundle.
