Anyone remember these?
For those who aren't familiar with Tutor Systems, you pick up a tile, answer a question and place the tile on the correct square in the bottom half of the box. Keep going until all 12 or 24 questions have been answered. If you have all the answers correct, when you flip the tiles over, there will be a pretty pattern of red, green and blue tiles.
Apparently they have updated these for modern times, but the ones they were using today were the ancient 1970s and 80s version. It was interesting to see some of the questions. One was about the Bible. The kids had to pick the correct word from the three in brackets that fitted the following sentence: The Bible tells us to put our trust (in of from) God. I don't think you'd find those kind of statements in the updated version.
It was an enjoyable trip back to school days for me though. Such fun.
