Mind Benders Level 3 for grades 3-6
When I was about ten years old, my parents, with their six daughters ages two to eleven, spent the summer driving a Dodge van from Panama to Oregon, then over to Michigan. Cars in those days did not have media centers, and if ours had a working radio or air conditioner, it was a well-guarded secret. But what we did have were several large tote bags of puzzle books. It was on this trip that I was first introduced to this absorbing type of puzzle. Mind Benders are deductive thinking puzzles that develop vital logic, reading comprehension, and mental organization skills necessary for solving real-life problems.

Identify Logical Associations
Your child will carefully analyze each Mind Benders story and its clues, identifying logical associations between people, places, and things. The key is to start with the most obvious associations, then deduce less obvious associations until everything finally fits together.

Answers Included
Includes step-by-step instructions and detailed answers. Levels spiral in difficulty within grade ranges

  • Prepares your child for testing! Develops reading comprehension, logic, and problem solving.
  • New version offers twice as many activities! Mind Benders Book 3 is composed of activities from the old Mind Benders A1 and A2 books.

    Fun & Learning! February 19, 2014
    Reviewer: Diana  
    My 8 year old loved learning how to do these logic problems. He did need help sometimes, but I was able to walk him through how to find the answer {and the answers give a step-by-step solving as well}. He begged me to order the next book for him! Mind Benders are a fun way to introduce critical thinking!

    Wonderful!! October 25, 2013
    Reviewer: Jodi T.  
    My ADHD 4th grader LOVES this book! At first she had a hard time using abstract thinking to put the clues together, but once she got the hang of it, she was hooked! Now this is the first thing she wants to do every day! Worth every penny!

    Excellent for teaching abstract thinking June 2, 2012
    Reviewer: Rhonda  
    These are intended for elementary aged children but will challenge your older children as well as their teachers! These are not easy puzzles, so there's no danger of getting bored. I've had other curriculum that got predictable after the first few lessons, but these stay fresh and interesting throughout the entire book, leaving the whole family eager to get the next book in the series. I've used these with normal and gifted children but also with my special needs kids, and have found it worked well for all of them.

    Great addition for critical thinking May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Christine  
    Our 8 year old enjoyed everyone of these puzzles! We only wish there were more puzzles in these books. So I would suggest buying at the very least two books. They are great for teaching deduction and she enjoying figuring out these puzzles on her own. A great addition to your curriculum!
