Overview

Why did the dinosaur cry when it saw a fossil? It got sedimental. This and many other fun riddles are waiting to be discovered in Mary Quijano’s Hooked on Riddles, a book that explores techniques for teaching kids with various education-themed riddles. Teach your students math, English, science, and more with the help of these easy-to-remember word puzzles. People of all ages learn more effectively if they are enjoying themselves, and with these riddles, your students will be continually challenged and entertained. Not many third-graders can claim to have giggled their way through their geology lesson and come away with lasting knowledge, but with this book, that is exactly what will happen. 

In each chapter, Quijano also provides tips on how to apply these puzzling questions to develop critical thinking skills in children. After all, are you more likely to remember the plain fact that stalactites grow on the ceiling, or this: “What did the grouchy stalagmite say to the stalactite? Quit dripping on me!”
