PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Logic and Reasoning Puzzles Gr. 1-3

Birds on a Wire is a fun way to help students improve their critical thinking and problem solving skills. Students must use logic and reasoning as they create a set of birds on a wire that satisfies all the clues in the puzzle. The activities require them to analyze statements about relationships, evaluate a solution to see if it meets given criteria, explain their reasoning, create more than one solution to a problem, and generate their own problems and solutions. The student activities in this unit correlate to Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) Strategic Thinking/Complex Reasoning (level 3) and Extended Thinking/Reasoning (level 4) activities.
Students need to have an understanding of relative positions of objects using such terms as beside, in front of, behind, and next to in addition to ordinal numbers. The puzzles are differentiated and increase in complexity moving from 3 birds on a wire to 5 birds on a wire puzzles.
These activities may be used with the whole group in the morning as a daily challenge, in small groups, or in a math center. They are great for early finishers!
This unit includes:
• 8 three birds on a wire puzzles with clues
• 12 four birds on a wire puzzles with clues
• 16 five birds on a wire puzzles with clues
• 2 puzzles requiring students to create multiple combinations of birds on a wire
• Activity where students create their own Birds on a Wire puzzles
• Bird cards to use as manipulatives to help solve the puzzles
• 2 sets of answer key cards – one in color and one in b/w
• 1 set of student response sheets
