This is a lesson I did with my 8th graders during their common core fairy tale unit. The lesson is designed to be an introduction to the steps of problem solving. This is a powerpoint which defines and provides examples of five steps to problem solving according to Future Business Leaders of America. The steps are very simple, and incorporate nursery rhymes as the "problems." Since this is an introduction to problem solving and it uses a low level text, this could be scaffolded up or down to be accomplished with students from 3rd to 12th grade. My 8th graders completed the powerpoint and solved one problem in a group in an hour and a half. The lesson could be much longer if you provided time for groups to present and required additional practice for each group. And obviously there are many more nursery rhyme characters who may need your help!
