Make Problem Solving Fun

Inch Worm by White Pixels is an addictive collection of maze puzzles for ages 6 to adult. Students lead Inch home, interacting along the way with cherries (eat them), acorns (push them out of the way), leaves (make bridges), snails (push them home), ladybugs (push and pull them), and dragonflies (herd them home). 

Success requires skills in planning, problem solving, logic and spacial relationships. Some students will plan Inch’s entire route. Others will look for the next step that does no harm. Appropriate subgoals help kids solve the advanced puzzles. Their solutions reveal differing thought processes. Everyone will make some mistakes, and learn from them! It’s all good.
