Part of the key in successfully using brain teasers with any child is
to choose puzzles that are at a suitable
level of difficulty
When students are given teasers in the classroom that are too easy,
they quickly solve them and then become bored. On the other
hand, when students are presented with brain teasers that
are much too difficult, they become frustrated and give up.
With that in mind, always carefully
read and solve any brain teasers
first before assigning them to your students
. If you think
puzzler is just a wee bit too hard, consider assigning students to work
in pairs. If you're a parent, sit with your child as he begins
to solve a puzzle. If he gets "stuck," allow him to think about things
on his first, then offer small hints along the way.
