Guiding Question: How can students learn to solve logic puzzles?
Materials: Printed logic puzzles, pencils, extra paper
Procedure: Review the story of Solomon from the scriptures above. Remind them that Solomon asked God for wisdom instead of wealth, power, or a long life. This was because He knew that wisdom from God was most important for his life. Because Solomon asked for wisdom, God gave it to him and also blessed him with wealth, power, and a long life.
Introduce the activity. Remind students that Solomon asked for wisdom. One part of wisdom is using good logic. Teach students how to solve simple logic problems. Have them work in pairs or alone to solve additional logic problems.
Additional Questions: How can students apply knowledge of logic puzzles?
Supplemental Activity: Have the students work in partners to create logic puzzles for another partner pair to solve. The pairs can check each other’s answers when finished.
