### Valentine's Day Logic Puzzle

This is a good beginning grid-style logic puzzle to use with your students. If your students have never solved this kind of problem, you might want to do it together as a class. If you are unfamiliar with this format, here is a good tutorial.

You can also get This Valentine's Day Logic  Puzzle for free in worksheet form (along with another critical thinking Valentine's Day activity).

Six boys each have a crush on Kate. Read the clues to find out what each boy gave her for Valentine’s Day. Mark an X in squares that cannot be the answer. Mark and O in squares that you are sure are the correct answer.

• Hugo gave Kate a gift that begins with the same letter as his name.

• Jack put his gift in a box and wrapped with pink wrapping paper.

• Desmond’s gift, which was not candy, smelled really good.

• Neither Jack nor Sawyer gave Kate something she can eat.

• Ben needed an oven to make his gift.

Bonus points if you know where the names in the puzzle came from.

How do you solve the puzzle? I have 3 done, but can't figure out the last 3: Sawyer, John, Hugo.
Can you help me??
By the way, they are from Lost.
