Stepping Stones 2

In Book 2, the focus of the puzzles shifts from being visual to being reading-based. Students work with six different types of puzzles:
1. Warm-up Exercise - students must eliminate one picture that does not belong in a set of four
2. Sentence Completions - students complete a sentence by choosing a pictured answer or drawing in one of their own
3. Inference Statements - students read a series of three or four short sentences and determine if the last sentence is true or false
4. Inference Questions - students read a series of two or three short sentences followed by a short question and determine if the answer to the question is yes or no or if they do not have enough information to answer the question
5. Sequencing Activities - students evaluate a sequence of events to determine if it is logical or not
6. Logic Problems - students choose a picture answer or write their own answers to short logic problems
