Foster your child’s critical thinking skills and see confidence soar! Children are naturally inquisitive from infancy, yet creative and problem-solving skills need to be nurtured as children grow. Like literacy and numeracy skills, critical thinking skills require practice.

The variety of fun and creative activities in this series will challenge your child to use higher-order thinking skills based on Bloom’s Taxonomy. Every page provides a new and interesting activity that will help your child:

  • Think outside the box and use higher-order thinking skills through open-ended questions and challenges
  • Tap into his or her creativity with art projects and hands-on activities
  • Become a better learner by practicing critical thinking skills in cross-curricular activities (based on science, math, social studies, and language arts content)

The 100+ activities are organized around various grade-appropriate themes, including:

  • Animal Kingdom: Cats and Dogs; Giraffes and Elephants; Predators; Prey
  • Plants: Trees and Flowers; Fruits and Vegetables
  • Time: Looking Back; Looking Forward
  • Technology: Solutions; What’s Possible?
