Riddles are a great way to teach children higher order thinking skills. Besides being fun for kids, riddles teach; categories, answering questions, attributes (creating and associating), features, functions, vocabulary, inferential thought-the list goes on and on! With my own students I find that when we work on riddles, my kids understand all of these above listed skills with less work and less stress because there is a reason for this lesson. They want to SOLVE the riddle, therefore they need the skills to solve these riddles, which means they will work harder to figure them out without complaining!

This unit contains;
40 Riddle cards with picture card answers suitable for a whole class lesson or center activity.

A poster for understanding HOW to create their own riddles (to remind them).

20 Real picture cards that they can choose to work on creating the riddles as a group or by themselves.

A riddle card that is structured with sentence prompts and empty blanks for the students to write answers.
