A Google A Day is a relatively new experiment from Google Labs in
which they provide a puzzle a day for people to test their Google
searching skills. They will also show their answer which includes the
“how” as well as the “what”, to both help people improve strategic
thinking and searching skills as well as not having to be stumped. A
great game to use in classes for a lot of different purposes:
– searching
– strategies
– history
– science
– question generation
– critical thinking
– information assessment

I’m sure you can think of a lot of other ways you could use this to
build core skills in students as well as to just have fun yourself and
test your own skills!
