Have your students ever heard of an interlock puzzle? An interlock puzzle is a seemingly whole object that actually consists of several different pieces that are assembled together in such a way that it won’t fall apart when released. The difficulty with these types of puzzles is on how they can be disassembled and re-assembled back together.
This smartboard game provides players with several different interlock puzzles, and challenges them to dismantling the figures (the use of the keyboard is required, and a Smartboard Wand is highly recommended). The puzzles become increasingly difficult as the students progress, which in turn exercises both their patience and their logical thinking.
Group play can be conducted by giving each team a time limit to complete the most number of puzzles that they can. The group who finishes the most (or who solves the last puzzle the game can provide) wins.
