The Benefit of Brain Twisters
Brain twisters are a great way to get students thinking "outside the box". They require creativity, logic, deduction, patience and visual perception. After working with brain twisters on a regular basis, students will start to look at problems differently. They will begin to think of alternative solutions that are uncoventional or from a different perspective. Don't be surprised if after this activity, your students start using their creativity to make up brain twisters of their own to challenge you!
How to Use this Resource
This activity pack introduces four different types of brain twisters:
Letter Patterns - determining what certain letters stand for based on number clues
Visual Puzzles - deciphering a common phrase or word based on the visual attributes of letters or symbols in a box
Hink Pink - identifying two rhyming words based on a defining sentence
Clues in Common - deducing what complimentary word a group of words may have in common
If your students are not familiar with these brain twisters (or just need a refresher), I suggest you start with the worksheets. There is one worksheet (and answer key) included for each of the four types of brain twisters. These sheets will introduce the puzzles, provide examples, and opportunity for practice. Once your students have experienced the worksheets, they're ready for Brain Twister Bingo!
