Think It Out

Do you (and your students) like puzzles and solving riddles?  Stories to Solve and More Stories to Solve by George Shannon contain folktales from around the world that engage the older elementary reader or listener in figuring out an answer.  “The Sticks of Truth” in Stories to Solve is fun to demonstrate with several 12 inch wooden skewers.  Middle school and high school ESL students have enjoyed the story, requesting that I bring the book back in my next visit.
