Pre-school and young, grade-school-age kids love solving brain teasers and riddles. Naturally, though, the riddles must be fairly simple and involve topics that they are familiar with. The good thing about brain teasers and riddles is that they help kids develop critical thinking skills, logic, and they also invite the use of the process of elimination.
Critical thinking skills are becoming increasingly more important in today’s technological world, and it’s never too early to develop those skills. And what better — and more fun — way to learn them than from solving rhyming riddles?
Rustle Through the Leaves
At times I rustle through the leaves,
At times I help you fly a kite,
At times I rattle windowpanes
And whistle ’round the house at night.
What am I?
(Answer: The wind!)
