I have created 8 logic puzzles that would be appropriate for logic puzzle beginners in grades 2, 3 & 4. Each puzzle has clues about ways a country celebrates Christmas and the Christmas season. **Each puzzle has a short "blurb" about one or more ways the holiday season is celebrated in that country. They do not include all of the ways.**
The countries included are:
Germany - Christkind
England - Christmas Crackers
Australia - Carols By Candlelight
Mexico - La Posada
France - Le Reveillon
Italy - La Befana
Russia - Grandfather Frost, yelka (tree), kutia (pudding), Nutcracker &
Sweden - tomte, St. Lucia, Star Boys & straw ornaments
I have always enjoyed doing logic puzzles myself and decided to make some of my own for my students. Logic puzzles are excellent for critical thinking and reasoning skills. All logic puzzles can be solved by reading the clues. In my third grade class, I introduced logic puzzles by doing one as a whole group. Then I let them work on one with a partner. Finally, I let them try one on their own. They love these! They would work well as morning work.Your gifted and talented students will probably figure these out after an introductory lesson on how they work. I have included general directions for solving logic puzzles as well as solutions for each puzzle.
I WOULD BE HAPPY TO SUBSTITUTE WORDS FOR THEIR ENGLISH SPELLING. :)
