Introduce your students to logic puzzles! While these critical thinking activities can be fun, they are intimidating to students who don't know how to do them. This presentation shows step-by-step how to solve a grid logic puzzle. Each clue is examined, and the presentation shows exactly what to fill out and explains the thought process behind marking X's on O's on the grid. As a teacher, this is easy to use, and if you get distracted in the middle of it- no big deal- the thought process is still there! No losing track of where you were. I hope this is something helpful to other middle school teachers who love problem solving as much as I do!
It is also straight-forward enough that students can go through the presentation on their own, and then be ready to work logic puzzles independently. A great idea for either students who finish work quickly, or students who need extra help with critical thinking.
