Strengthen problem solving and logical deductive reasoning skills through this collection of fun mystery puzzlers! Activities will help change the way your students think, moving past stereotypes or recognizing multiple meanings of words.

Answers are often completely different from the expected answer.for example, a woman bought 'a bumper-to-bumper, roof-to-road, unlimited one-year warranty on all parts and labor. When the car broke down 3 months later, the woman found that she had to personally pay for all the repairs. Why?' Through asking yes/no questions, students will eventually come to the correct conclusion that the salesman lied!
Questions must be in yes/no format, though hints may be given to redirect thinking. Perfect for a warm-up or ending session, or just as a fun way to incorporate some critical thinking into the school-day. 72 reproducible pages, softcover. Grades 7-12+.
