Back before spring break, I tried out two new-to-me logic puzzles with my students. I already blogged about the Slants puzzles from Brain Bashers. Today, I want to blog about the Tents puzzles from Brain Bashers.
These Tents puzzles can be found here on the Brain Bashers website.
I created a one-page introduction with the rules for these Tents puzzles to give to my students.
Then, I used my snipping tool to grab several puzzles for my students to try their hands at.

I didn’t actually try any of these puzzles out for myself before giving them to my students.
Here’s how my first puzzle went:
I thought I was doing good, and then all of a sudden things just stopped falling into place. I had no idea where/when I had made a mistake with my logic. My students also really struggled with this first puzzle.
I’m happy to report that I did much better with the subsequent puzzles!
One of my students came back from Spring Break saying she had done some of the puzzles over break and really enjoyed them. I call that a win!

The tent puzzles are similar to Nurikabe puzzles on Sporcle. One quizmaker has made mini, medium, and large puzzles so there's a puzzle for everyone—or any amount of time.
