Brain Teasers and the Power of Yet

I love using games and activities to teach a point. It works with staff development as well as in student lessons. Here are some brain teasers that can be used to teach the power of yet. When I show this slide, I ask who can figure these out. Then I ask, who doesn’t get them YET. Reinforcing the power of yet during a non-threatening game can teach students to recognize that feeling as a normal feeling during the learning process. We all have moments where we don’t get it yet. Use this as a fun icebreaker, hook for a lesson, or brain challenge. Enjoy!
