### Kenken puzzles for mental math and logical thinking

Here's another fun idea to get a bit of mental math into the math lessons in early grades... play KenKen puzzles! (And they are really neat logical thinking puzzles for any "grade" or age - I enjoy them too!)

You can play Kenken online here - options include the puzzle size, operations to use, and difficulty level.
