This game allows pairs of students to practice deductive reasoning skills and is fun to boot! Just print the riddles (20 in all -- specifically written for 3rd grade level students) on colored paper, laminate, and cut and you have a ready-made station. Student directions can be copied and placed with the game board and riddle cards. An answer key is provided as well, so partners can check each other. All pieces will fit in a gallon Ziploc baggie for handy storage.
The game can be modeled whole class by putting a 100 chart on the document camera and reading the clues one at a time, showing students how to rule out impossible answers in order to find the correct one.
