Puzzle: U.S. Tourism - Reading & Fun Logic!
Students will read the hints provided, then use logic to determine WHO stayed in WHICH city, traveled by WHICH type of transport, and stayed in WHICH type of housing. This is a great way to review terms of transportation and housing. :) You can even make it into a competition - who finishes first wins, or do group work by dividing up the hints.

Brainteasers (Verbal) - Fun with Words!
