Ditloid Puzzle Measurement / Creative Thinking: Mental Flexibility "Test"
I've used this Ditloid Puzzle math "test" in the past as an introductory activity at the beginning of the year, but it can be used to introduce or review a measurement unit, or any time you need an engaging activity. It encourages students to think "outside the box", using their math background knowledge with initial hints to solve each question. I usually use it as an opportunity to teach students the importance of teamwork, and every class has really enjoyed it!
A SMARTboard lesson that goes along with this activity is included. Each slide contains a puzzle and a hint. Click to the right of the puzzle for its solution.
Included: 15 Question "Test" (see photo), answer key, lesson suggestions, SMARTboard lesson
