Successful Puzzle Club

AbcTeacher17,


It was so much fun running a puzzle club! I called it "Brain Games Club" to add some extra excitement around it and it also allowed me to show an episode of the show Brain Games every couple of sessions that might have related to our topic for the week.

We started each class with word teasers (I don't know if they have an exact name but I attached one of the documents) as a warm-up and then jumped into whatever we were doing that day. I taught them how to solve logic problems (attached) and they eventually solved Einstein's Riddle (I put in a few answers since they were really struggling with it, the couple of answers I put in really helped them get started without feeling defeated and they worked together successfully.) That video is from the TedEd Youtube channel and I think I went through all of those puzzles with my kiddos. We also did some cryptology puzzles.

We ended the "semester" with a field trip to an Escape the Room!
