PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Encourage students to practice higher order (critical) thinking and metacognitive skills and flexible thinking as they solve problems by analyzing sets of words to find common elements.

Students solve these fun puzzles by:

Understanding and comprehending connections between various words or ideas

Recognizing, analyzing and isolating patterns and characteristics

Thinking flexibly to approach problem-solving in new ways

Evaluating the strength of relationships

Finding and creating relationships using logical connections

These puzzles can be used as bell-ringers, challenges for early finishers, and best of all, as engaging games to inspire students while promoting valuable skills.

This product includes:

-49 full color Mind Sprint puzzles (at different levels of challenge)

-Introduction to Mind Sprints and the skills the puzzles promote

-Instructions for incorporating Mind Sprints in daily lessons and engaging games

-Options for increasing challenge level with the puzzles and addressing HOTS from Bloom's Taxonomy

-BW images of each Mind Sprint puzzle (for colored ink conservation)

-Answer key for all puzzles with enrichment information for additional challenge

The puzzles are based on a wide range of topics including topics common in course study and topics related to interests outside the classroom.

This activity is a favorite with my students. Utilizing the puzzles in games that encourage participation by all students in collaborative, non-threatening settings provides a fun way to improve student thinking skills and increase the "basic knowledge bank" of students.
