It’s an easy way to encourage your students to think critically!
Kids love the variety of questions and think they’re fun!
The Brain Teasers can be used with the whole class without running off copies! You can use a document camera or simply ask a question and have kids respond. I like having the kids use whiteboards but you could also do thumbs up or down, a simple raising of the hand, partner sharing, and more.
They come with a record sheet, so you can use them as a fast finisher activity!
You can throw them in the sub tub to be used as a perfect “filler” activity for extra minutes.
The Brain Teasers are an easy way to provide a challenge, while allowing everyone to learn something new!
Each page is loaded with a variety of activities that are fun and engaging! Here’s a sample of a few types of activities your students will love!
Two Truths and a Lie: Two of the facts about famous Americans are absolutely true but one of them isn’t. Read all of the facts and have the kids guess which one is the lie.
Would you Rather… Kids must choose between the two items. There is no “I like them the same”, or “I don’t like either of them” business!
Find the Pattern: Math thinking activity. After coming up with the next two numbers, I like to have the kids tell me the rule mathematically.
How Many ______ Can You Name? Here the whiteboards would come in handy. I definitely set a time limit for this or some smart kid will go all day!
Analogies: Once kids figure them out, it’s a great idea to discuss “why” they work.
Name That Continent: A country is listed and the kids try to determine (Ok…lots of times they guess) which continent it is from. Here’s your chance to put that globe to good use!
Which Two Don’t Belong: A list of words that fit a certain category. Sounds easy? Not always as often the words are very similar in nature.
Scientific Questions: Food chains, land-forms, solar system, magnets, weather, animals and more!
“My students LOVE brain teasers! It also conveniently addresses some of the content covered with my standards so makes either a great introduction or reminder of previous learning!” – Amanda, 4th Grade Teacher
