BRIEF OUTLINE: These are two logic puzzles that can be used for reading or listening exercises.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Review the material with the students.  Be sure they know the aim.  I like to start with, "Jim is better than Jenny at basketball.  Jim is not better than Ken at basketball.  Who's the best at basketball?" 
  2. Hand out worksheet and explain their goal.  Make sure they understand the names and questions.
  3. Check the answers by having them read the problem sentence by sentence.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • This can be used for higher level classes as a listening exercise.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Lower level classes should read only and can maybe work in pairs.
