NRICH's Upper Secondary offering is an interesting collection of games and puzzlers that address a range of skills. While the site states that the content here is for 11th- and 12th-graders, there are a few activities that would be fine for students in sixth grade or above. It's important to know that the site was developed in the U.K., so some of the concepts and language may be unfamiliar. If you teach in the United States, give yourself some extra time to align NRICH's resources to your curriculum.
