Schools were built upon the fundamental that teachers and knowledge and information were scarce. That is no longer the reality. Now, as so many more of us gain faster and broader access to the Web, all of those things are suddenly abundant.

Three Brain Teasers to Spur Logical Thinking and Collaboration - Mindshift

Three Brain Teasers to Spur Logical Thinking and Collaboration - Mindshift | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
There are lots of ways to stretch student thinking and get them talking to each other about ideas. One fun way is through riddles that require inductive reasoning, critical thinking and hopefully some good collaboration around student ideas. The three brain teasers below created by TED-Ed have fun visuals and include an explanation at the end. All the videos also include lesson plan ideas to deepen the conversation and start discussion.
