Build critical thinking skills with Mind Benders' collection of brain-tantalizing teasers. Designed to develop logic, reading comprehension and mental organization skills, Mind Benders have proven successful with children of a wide range of ability and motivation. Students learn to carefully analyze each puzzle and its clue, identifying logical associations between people, places, and things as they work from the most obvious to the less obvious associations. Answers are best found with the use of the included charts, marking off one possibility after another, narrowing down the possibilities for each choice. Notes are included about the clues to prevent over-thinking problems, and an example problem is included that walks you through the solution.
