For younger students

Schoolchildren like animal riddles. Just for them, the level of difficulty should be higher. As in the case of children under 5 years old, children include logic and imagination, because while listening to the task, you need to create a visual image in your head, find what you are looking for and establish the connection between the answer and the task. That is why sometimes the answers to puzzles about animals in older children can be completely unexpected. Do not rush to argue with the child and immediately give the "right" answer. Ask for an explanation of why he thinks so. So children learn not only to analyze, but also to defend their point of view, to argue it.

These animal puzzles are a great pastime for children from 8 years and older:
