Find the Crazy Duck

10 min1 participant

Compare different orientations of bricks on a base plate. Find and manipulate the crazy duck to place it back in line.

Let's play!

  1. Explore the base plate.

  2. Find the crazy duck who is out of order.

  3. Pick the crazy duck and replace it correctly in the row.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • 10 bricks or more

Make a line of spaced bricks in reading position, across the top of the base plate.

Place one of those bricks in the opposite direction.

Facilitation tips

  • Ask “Why do you think the duck was out of line?”.

  • Ask “Make a row with one crazy duck for me”.

Possible variations

  • Change bricks orientation (allow enough space to replace ducks).

  • Create columns.

  • Change number of crazy ducks.

  • Change number of rows.
