There are always those days right before a holiday, when all of the other teachers are showing out of date movies, and your students just can’t focus on your lesson...because you are actually teaching.  We get it!  For that reason, we created “WORK IT OUT: Cognitive Exercises to Build Brain Power, Stretch Thinking, & Increase Mental Agility.”  In this resource, we have 10 engaging logic puzzles for holidays and seasons throughout the year to help give your students that mental workout they need.  Students will use skills such as logic, deduction, analysis, synthesis, and sequencing.

Secondary teachers can often get the dreaded “You’re no fun!” when it comes to holidays.  This resource allows you to recognize a holiday or season while still maintaining an academic focus.  These are the perfect brain teasers to promote higher-level thinking and keep your student’s minds from turning to mush during the day before a holiday.  They are designed for middle school students but can be used with advanced elementary or even high school.  Each puzzle is a moderate level and we provide an answer key for the teacher.  

⭐This resource is designed to fit with the 10 Tab version of our Instructional Black Book. If you are looking for the 6 Tab version, please click here!

These activities are perfect in any medium.  You can assign them digitally through your LMS (Google Classroom, Canvas, etc.) or print them out and work on them with pencil and paper.  They can be completed as a whole group, in learning centers, or even alone.  They can also be assigned to students who are early finishers so they continue to have quality instructional work.  

This resource includes the following puzzles:

  • Flummoxed about Fall
  • Costume Conundrum (Halloween)
  • Thinking about Thanksgiving
  • Stuck in the Snow (Winter)
  • Questioning Cupid (Valentine’s Day)
  • Crack the Clover (St. Patrick’s Day)
  • Stumped by Spring
  • Egg Enigma 
  • Mother’s Day Mystery
  • Camp Confusion (Summer)

⭐ This resource is designed to integrate seamlessly into The Instructional Black Book with 6 tabs or 10 tabs, our version of a digital interactive notebook.⭐ 


Included in Google Folder:

  • “WORK IT OUT Student Deck” Google Slide deck with a title slide, section divider page, and 10 different logic puzzles based on the seasons/holidays designed to mirror our pages in The Instructional Black Book with 10 tabs

All of our items are designed with a modern, clean look to capture your students’ attention.  But, hold on… that’s certainly not enough (we’re actually teachers, and we know that pretty only goes so far).  Therefore, our focus is on developing high quality instructional materials that just happen to look incredible.  We don’t believe in fluff, we believe in building great educators.  We are here to help you construct your classroom from the ground up or remodel one with a great foundation.
