From the imagination of Claudio Ripamonti (Crip) comes an original series that offers activities to review the main school subjects for primary school (Italian, mathematics, history, science, and geography) during the summer holidays. The activities are proposed in the form of enigmatic games, which make the revision work fun and enjoyable.

Brain Teaser Games – Second Grade

Brain Teaser Games – Third Grade

Edo and Lara and the secret of the spring

Together with Edo and Lara, their dog Biscotto and funny Aunt Olga, the children become the protagonists of a trip to Australia, to discover the mystery of the spring from which no more water flows to the pond. In a richly illustrated format, children can review the third grade school subjects (Italian, mathematics, history, geography, and science) in the form of fun brain teaser games.

Brain Teaser Games – Fourth Grade

Edo and Lara and the legend of the dragon

In this book, the children join the twins Edo and Lara, their funny Aunt Olga and their dog Biscotto in an exciting trip to China, to solve the mystery of a scary dragon. In a richly illustrated format, children can review the third grade school subjects (Italian, mathematics, history, geography, and science) in the form of fun brain teaser games.

The structure of the book

The worksheets are divided into two parts:

In the FIRST PART (sheets 1-40) you need to collect all the equipment. When aunt Olga says a riddle, you need to stick the correct sticker on the camping page, wherever you want. After you have got all 8 stickers (by choosing carefully because there are extras!), you are ready for the second part of the trip.

In the SECOND PART (sheets 41-80) other activity sheets are found. Here, aunt Olga will show you which pieces of the puzzle need to be inserted in the grid at the back of the book. When all 16 pieces are put together, the mystery of the ancient medallion (in the first book) or the mystery of the pretty dolphin (in the second book) will finally be solved!
