Each activity sheet is an excellent resource for enrichment or extension learning including practice with analogies, improvisation writing, word connections, and brain teasers. Each activity sheet also focuses on one of six main math strategies:
- Look For A Pattern
- Guess & Check
- Draw A Picture
- Organized List, Table or Chart
- Working Backwards
- Act It Out

There are several ways you can use these activity sheets in your classroom:
*Select one or more puzzles each day for a quick, daily thinking warm up challenge
*Have students work in groups to solve a few or all of the puzzles. Groups can present and discuss what strategies they used to solve them
*Copy and cut puzzles apart for learning centers and enrichment practice
*Give the activity sheet as a weekly challenge to work on independently
*Excellent activities for early finishers

A "Progress Tracker" form is included to allow students to check or place points awarded for each of the different types of puzzles they are able to solve independently and correctly.

The problems in this book represent a variety of thinking skills. They are designed to help students practice the patience and perseverance involved in problem solving. Part of the fun and challenge of solving any puzzle is struggling with it until that moment of discovery that opens the "secret" to arriving at its solution.
