This freebie is a sampling of my brain-challenge products. My brain challenges are a great way to get students thinking critically! Students need to think outside the box, look for patterns, and use logic in order to solve. I created these specifically for my AIG students but any student will benefit from these and feel a sense of pride when they've solved one!
They can be used in many ways -
* Morning or bell work - display a puzzle for students to work on instead of a work sheet. These are a great way to get their brains ready for learning!
* Fun Friday activity - reward students at the end of the week with a puzzle of your choosing. Students love to be challenged and this is a great way to end the week.
* Early Finisher activity - Your higher students who always seem to finish before anyone else would love to select a puzzle to solve while the rest of the class is finishing up.
* Math Center - Place one puzzle in a math center. Students can work individually or in groups to solve.

I know your students will enjoy these puzzles!
