SuperThinkers encourages you to become a thinker, not a memorizer. The goal of SuperThinkers is to teach how to think by creating connections, looking for meaning behind facts, and analyzing to understand. Choose a game from the Peetnik Mysteries, watch a short video, then begin using information on the site to solve the mystery. In addition to games, the site includes a Creativity Workshop that features short online books with ideas for creating a book, making a movie, or making a jigsaw puzzle. Many of the mystery pages include an audio button that will read the text for you.
In the ClassroomUse SuperThinkers as part of a larger mystery unit or as a reading activity to encourage logic, problem solving, critical thinking, cooperative learning, analysis, pattern interpretation, mystery solving, writing, observation, sharing, discovery, imagination, self determination, reflection, and self expression. The mysteries take about 30 minutes to solve and would be best utilized in a computer lab 1-1 setting or as a whole class with a projector (or interactive whiteboard). The Peetnik Mysteries can also be used to teach students how to create a time line, to compare and contrast, or as story starters.
