Inspired by: Bunch of Fun Riddles

Estimated time: Varies. 5-10 min warm-up or 40-50 min for the entire presentation.

Thank you @HeyItsMori for the inspiration (:

There are 4 types of puzzles:
1. Answer the Question
2. Eye Test
3. Word Math
4. Tongue Twister/ Tied

Have the students break into groups.
About 1m to 2m per question depending on difficulty.
Groups can answer by:
- Using board and markers. Everyone raises board at the same time when time is up.
- Write answer on the worksheet. Leader comes to the front to show ALT or JTE.

Do a run-through so you know when to stop before the answers show.
The brains on the bottom right corner of the questions will take you to the slide for students to pick from.
The brain next to the word "choose a brain puzzle" will take you to the last "Good Job" slide for when you finish the lesson (:
To make it more difficult you can ask students to:
- write out numbers
- give answers in full sentences

Please let me know if you have any other fun puzzle ideas.
Ran out of things at the end and thus included the shiritori and category games at the end!
