Puzzle: Wolves and Sheep at a River Crossing

Aim: All six animals safely cross the river.


Three wolves and three sheep need to cross the river with one boat. The boat can only take two animals at a time and it needs at least one animal to row it. If there are more wolves than sheep, anywhere, the sheep will be eaten and you would have failed. So find a way to get them all safely to the other bank!
