# Logic Puzzles

Use your detective skills to solve a Brain Box puzzle. Charts help you get started solving each mystery.

Use the clues provided by the Brainbashers site to piece together what actually happened at an event, gathering, or contest.

# What to Do?

What to do if your child needs something to consider while waiting for the online class to start?

Need word puzzles that can be solved in a few moments of spare time or pondered for a day?

I’ve collected math and word puzzles just for you!

# Explore Möbius Strips

Kids can try it at home with scrap paper, scissors, and tape. It’s very adaptable for different ages and abilities.

Watch the video to see what happens. Try it yourself.

Keep track of the number of twists before you tape the paper to find the pattern for how many twists results in how many loops.

It’s fascinating for both children and grownups!

# DK Findout!

An extraordinary resource from Dorling Kindersley!

It has info about the arts, coding, history, language arts, math, science, sports, and MUCH more.

Great images and simple formatting can make this easy to share with children of any age!

# Popular Puzzles

An amazing resource from the National Council of Teachers of Math: Figure This. Consider these activities to enrich your math class, for an after school class, a math club, a math night, or your sub folder in case you weren’t able to leave lesson plans for your sub.

# Wonderful Writing Resources

I seem to find it easier to challenge capable students in math or solving puzzles than students who are passionate about writing.

It seems there are many online resources for math/puzzle solvers and not so many for writers.

Often the contests for writers include a fee or a requirement to purchase a bound book which can be out of a student’s price range.

Jerry Jenkins posted The Ultimate Guide to Writing Contests 2019. There are three dozen contests in his list. Here’s the one I found interesting.

# Quick Science: Toys in Space Videos

Here’s an amazing resource I added to the Newton’s Laws web page – sixteen short videos posted by NASA that you’ll want to show your students. Each video introduces a common toy and demonstrates how it’s used on Earth and then on the International Space Station.
