CHRISTMAS LATIN SQUARES: Reindeer Squares Critical Thinking Differentiated GATE

Use REINDEER SQUARES to teach your students deductive reasoning while disguising it as lots of fun. These brain teasers are square arrays of n x n rows and columns in which n items fill the cells so that no item is used more than once in each row and column. Known as Latin Squares in mathematics, they are used for statistical analysis. If they seem familiar, they should; Sudoku is a 9 x 9 Latin Square.

HOW TO USE THIS PRODUCT

  • Copy the work mats and reindeer tiles on heavy cardstock. Cut the tiles apart. I recommend storing each color set of tiles in a separate Ziploc bag.
  • Demonstrate the task using the 3x3 array work mat and 3 tiles each of 3 colors.
  • Distribute copies of the other boards to your students. Instruct your learners to complete the task independently, using ever harder arrays.
  • Use the extension arrays to spur students who may be reluctant to abandon the “easy,” diagonal stripes solutions. The extension arrays have several tiles preprogrammed.
  • Use Reindeer Squares for small group instruction.
  • Place Reindeer Squares in a math center.
  • Provide Reindeer Squares materials for a sponge activity.
  • Fast finishers love working on Reindeer Squares .
  • Reindeer Squares are excellent for enrichment.
