Product Description
Invite students to have some critical thinking fun as they put on their thinking caps.

Included are 50 riddles and brain teasers. You can use one of them as an end-of-class way to have students thinking overnight, or you can present several in class to promote discussion as students figure them out.

Would you prefer to have a ten-gallon container full of nickels or a five-gallon container full of dimes?
a 5-gallon container full of dimes (since dimes are smaller than nickels, you would get more)

This 6-page printable activity is suitable for middle school, high school, and college classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
