litna? or lutna?

I'm not familiar with "The Temple of My Familia" either, but love the puzzles, thanks again for sharing. I'm thinking about spending my summer revamping my algebra 2 to be a bit more puzzle-oriented.

I'm looking into Perplex City for some inspiration.. but thanks for putting your stuff out here as well.

"Luna" - it's easier when you know the teachers' names :) I haven't read the book either, but it's her favorite. I asked the teacher for each puzzle to come up with a "thing" that the students would have to do or figure out, and this was hers.

I'd like to see whatever you end up creating over the summer - let me know if you're interested in collaborating at all. I'm continually revamping my classes.

A great site that has all the old Perplex City cards (so you can look at the puzzles without buying tons of cards) can be found here.

I just finished up for the year on friday, so I'll be taking a short break from thinking about classes (thta call that a vacation.. right?), but I start teaching a summer college class in june, so I'll begin looking at puzzling my classes soon enough.

What do you do with your blog over the summer?

Yeah, it's good to take a break from thinking about teaching every once and a while :).. I don't know what I'll do with my blog over the summer (this will be the first summer since I started writing it), but probably I'll just let it sit. I'll be away for most of July, but I'll be back in August when staff development starts, and that's when I do most of my planning and revamping for the new year.
