Learning Through Play in Middle School

We were leaving the house to head to an activity for George. Usually I take along some of Jack’s school work to make the most of the hour plus sitting time we have. I could not find Jack’s math binder so decided to take a strategy game along to play instead.

Mastermind is a fun, simple game which teaches code skills and deduction. When we first played the game the kids could not figure out the answer before reaching the end. Now? They usually get it and ask why I didn’t make it harder.
