Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
To liven up the last few minutes of the day, I bring out the game Mind Trap and select a card to read to the class. The challenge sometimes is so intriguing that I send the class home to ponder the clue overnight. The Mind Trap cards range in challenge levels, and each student has an opportunity to solve the question. The students enjoy trying to solve the mysteries, and we make great use of the time before last bell.
