Pebble Puzzles. A Source Book of Simple Puzzles and Problems.
Gibbs, William M.
This booklet is a collection of puzzles, games, and investigations. All that children need are some stones or shells, on some of which they must write numerals. For playing with the whole class, the game or puzzles may be marked out on the floor or in sand; in that case, larger objects such as small rocks and empty tins may be used. Children are encouraged to use an experimental, trial-and-error approach at first, but the goal is to develop solution strategies. (MNS)
