Riddle Me

Do you use riddles to help your students think at a higher level or maybe just to make them smile.  (I am awful at riddles, does that mean I can't think at a higher level?)

The idea at Education World was to make a bingo cards with just the answers then play giving the riddle as the call out.  Maybe a fun party game for the Halloween party?   What do you think?

Here are some riddles I found at Education World:

I thought it sounded like fun.

My family just enjoyed listening to the riddles and trying to figure them out. I think I will use them in the classroom by having a riddle a day - students write down what they think the answer is and then at the end of the day we see if anyone guessed right. I will have to think of a small prize they can win - maybe the right to wear a Riddler button?

These are great! Thanks. I love collecting and having a supply of "vanilla" jokes and riddles to tell my classes at various times. It's always hard to find good ones though.

I am glad you are enjoying them. I am going to use them to help with inferencing skills with my students. That is an area of weakness.
