These puzzles and just a few toothpicks for each student and you have an excellent activity to challenge student thinking
. Consider using this resource with your intellectually gifted students
. Maybe pose a puzzle in the morning and talk about solutions later in the day or the next day. As students become familiar with the puzzles, they can pose new ones for classmates!
The thirty-two puzzles are included three different formats - choose the one you like best:
♥ Small cards
can be printed two-sided with the answer on the back.
♥ Full pages
can be printed and displayed in your room.
♥ A PowerPoint™ presentation
can be projected as included in your purchase or you can copy and paste the images into a different format.
The teaching duration is up to you, a few minutes each day for 32 days or an hour or two during your math class. You could use the activity during a family math night
or an open house
Print and send home a card with links
to two web sites with toothpick puzzles for families to try at home.
