We combined our mathematical skills with critical thinking to play Qwirkle today. The kids did a great job learning and evaluating various strategies to achieve higher scores.
We used our convergent thinking to solve another Mystery Logic Puzzle. The kids stretched their divergent thinking to SCAMPER a Magnifying Glass. The results were SO creative!
We finished our Fingerprint Analysis by checking samples from a few friends in class. Later, we researched Cryptology learning about codes and ciphers and the differences between them. The kids used their new knowledge to solve a Mini Mystery-"Who Robbed the Safe?" They did a good job analyzing the fingerprint samples from each of the suspects to narrow down to a final culprit!
