"What does each Brainteaser contain? "

Thinking Skill: Each brainteaser details the thinking skill to be developed.

Subject Link: It details the subject link - many of the brainteasers are activities that complement objectives in published curricula.

Learning Link: Each brainteaser states if there is a link to another learning style.

Organisation: Each brainteaser gives suggestions for organisation. Many of the ideas can be adapted for different situations.
