This set of five table logic puzzles is geared for 5th to 7th grade students. I created these puzzles as an enrichment activity to complement your Thanksgiving holiday season. The puzzles offer fun and little known facts relating to this historical holiday, including:
• Turkey facts
• Historical firsts relating Thanksgiving
• Food - Geography connections
• Prominent Pilgrim facts
• Travel distance puzzle
These brainteasers require critical thinking skills to solve, with one puzzle also requiring a minimum of map reading skills.
No prior content knowledge is required to solve these puzzles.
All of our logic puzzles have been kid-tested and edited for clarity and solve-ability. The two biggest hints you can give kids to help them solve these puzzles is:
(1) Go back and re-read the clues. Sometimes an earlier clue doesn't give you all its information the first time you read it.
(2) Read carefully. In the excitement to solve a puzzle, you can easily miss a key preposition or negative word clue.
Anytime you have a problem, please feel free to post a question or send us an email. We'll be happy to explain the steps for solving the logic puzzle.
