Product Description
What a great way to build critical thinking skills and have a fun challenge at the same time! These logic puzzles from The Science Vault ask your students to:
~determine how many coins each Leprechaun has and what type of metal each pot made of.
~calculate the height of each Leprechaun and determine their vest color

Both puzzles utilize arithmetic skills of measurement in feet and inches, less than, more than, addition & subtraction, so the puzzle is not out of reach for a 4th or 5th-grade student, and still challenging for 8th-grade students. The math isn't the "gatekeeper" here: the emphasis is on using a problem-solving mindset to use the clues given in order to solve the puzzle.

My students love these puzzles! They are great for transition time, great when students need enrichment or something to do while other students finish their work. I also include them in emergency sub plans because they can be done with very little guidance - they just require persistence on the part of students :)

I also have other types of logic puzzles here on TpT. While my teaching area is science, I have created general interest puzzles for a wide range of age groups and interests. Examples of the topics are Sports, Earth Day, Valentine's, and Winter Olympics. You can see them all here:
