I’ve talked before about our own method of homeschooling. We are eclectic homeschoolers and this has a lot to do with my kids. We lean more towards hands-on and away from the classical and Charlotte Mason approaches. Except for logic.
Once I posted my first logic puzzle this year, someone on Instagram was kind enough to remind me of logic Fridays. They might be my new love. Ever since then we have been incorporating more logic and critical thinking into our Friday plans and it has been a blast.
Math is a great way to use logic puzzles. There is something about putting in pictures instead of numbers that makes it fun rather than intimidating. Just like for our Halloween math, I created some puzzles for Thanksgiving.
If you thought you were past adding in holidays to your lessons because you are teaching older kids then think again. Adding in holiday-themed assignments and special occasions help to break up the monotony. This can be especially important for topics that students may struggle in or find boring.
This set of Thanksgiving math worksheets is a great way to practice problem-solving and algebraic thinking – plus its just fun. This set includes 5 sets of equations all featuring popular Thanksgiving treats.
