BRIEF OUTLINE: This is a classic logic puzzle. The students must read and understand the relative pronoun sentences in order to solve the puzzle. There are familiar characters in the puzzle to make it more interesting!

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After breaking the students up into their lunch groups, or any smaller group of anywhere from 3-6 kids. hand out the  worksheet. 
  2. Explain the premise on the left, and translate if it's necessary. Don't translate the clues!
  3. Give the students some time (limit them if necessary) to try and work together to figure out the logic puzzle.
  4. The first group to come to you with the correct answer gets stickers and/or the loving admiration of their fellow classmates!
  5.  

VARIATIONS:

  • Instead of working in groups, the students could also work in pairs or individually.
  • Option 3 Is better for lower level students and includes a chart for students to keep track of the information.

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Make sure the students are familiar with the grammar point: The girl who..., The animal that..., etc.
  • The vocabulary used should be just fine JHS 3rd year students.
      •
