PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Great activity for enrichment, or use as a bellringer/transition activity, or even as part of emergency sub plans. I use this logic puzzle with my freshmen physics students (in my district, we teach physics to all freshmen) and I have also used it with 8th grade physical science students.

Based on the power of bench pressing, it asks students to calculate the power of six athletes. The clues are based around force, distance, and time, so students should have an understanding of work = force x distance as well as power = work/time. I also have a work logic puzzle, you can find it here: Work Logic Puzzle

I usually combine this puzzle with the lab we do where students calculate their own personal horsepower running up stairs. While I'm out in the hallway timing kids, the students not with me are in the room working on this puzzle.

This pdf packet includes the puzzle 2-up to save on copies, one up with blank space, and a one up with the table for answers pre-created on the bottom. Answer key is included.

This logic puzzle is a part of a packet of nine science logic puzzles for sale here on TPT. The packet is priced at $4.99, so there is significant savings in buying the bundle. :) You can find it here: Science Logic Puzzle Packet

I also have other logic puzzles for sale here on TPT - besides the science puzzles, I have general interest puzzles and holiday-themed puzzles. You can find them all here:
