Ready for a challenge? Try the Leapfrog Puzzle.
Leapfrog is a great logic puzzle/game for grades 3-6. This activity encourages problem solving, critical thinking, and teamwork. It is a perfect addition to any lesson on Growth Mindset and makes a great back to school activity!
Leapfrog is not easy to figure out, but that’s the challenge! There is no greater success than figuring out the pattern and being able to recreate that pattern.
To set up your game board, you need 8 game pieces of 2 different colors. I like to use the two-sided math counters. Put one color on one side the other on the other side. The counters represent the frogs - red frogs and yellow frogs. To play, you can move any counter you want, but you must follow these rules.
You can only move each frog forward - never backward.
You can leap over 1 frog at a time.
The puzzle has been solved when both colors on the board have switched places and the rules have been followed.
This product includes a full page colored game board and half sheet game boards in color and B&W.
