Fun Challenge Blog
This great blog called "Think! A Program Designed to Encourage Kids to Think Outside the Box" posts a weekly challenge for kids to complete. Things like: go on a walk and tell your child to pick 7 stones that are 2 inches wide or bigger. Don't tell them anything else. When you get home, challenge them to see how high they can build a tower from the rocks. I glanced through many of the suggested challenges and it looks like they would all work with a very wide range of ages. I'm looking forward to trying them out. I've been looking for a few new ideas to spice up our learning time. Math games have been very spicy! A real hit, and it's great to see the cogs turning and developing new logic skills.
