Mini Mystery Logic Puzzles

If you haven’t taken a look at our mini-mysteries before, you’re in for a treat! A Teach Starter mini mystery is a logic puzzle that encourages deeper thinking using memory and problem-solving skills. What’s more, our teacher team has designed every one of our mini-mysteries help to increase visual-spatial reasoning.

And the best part? They work brilliantly as a warm-up or fast-finisher activity!

How to Use This Christmas Logic Puzzle

Who broke the candy cane? Was it Santa? The Elf doesn’t think so! How about the innocent-looking Christmas mouse? Encourage your students to read the statements made by these cute Christmas characters to help them find the culprit!

In order to solve their logic puzzle, direct students to read each of the statements made by the characters, as well as the Cold Hard Facts. There will be “red herring” characters for students to eliminate, and they will need to use their problem-solving skills to determine who broke the candy cane.
