Critical Thinking Challenge

For Children in Grade 0-3


Welcome to the Critical Thinking Challenge!

We’re excited to see you here and hope your child will join in the fun through all 3 rounds of the competition.


Please make sure to follow us on Facebook to see when each round goes live.


Every challenge will require your child to put on his/her thinking cap, so let’s see them give it their best shot! What matters is that they try, because learning comes in doing, whether they get the answer right or wrong.


“If we teach children everything we know, their knowledge is limited to ours.
If we teach children to think, their knowledge is limitless.”

– Michael Baker, President of The Critical Thinking Company

What are the prizes?

Every child who submits the correct answers in all three rounds of the Challenge will be eligible for the lucky draw to win a set of 2 Critical Thinking books appropriate for their grade level (between Grades 0-3) and one Engine Room (lesson planning book) from us at Love2Learn.

Three winners will be drawn on Monday 26 April and winners will be notified on Facebook and via email.

These books are high quality with colourful illustrations on every page. Various activities are structured around enjoyable topics and overlap with language arts, maths, science,
and social studies.

Grade 0 Critical Thinking
Grade 1 Critical Thinking
Grade 2 Critical Thinking
Grade 3 Critical Thinking

These books stimulate children to create, analyse, evaluate, and think about their thinking as they go through each book, building on their natural curiosity for learning.

Building Thinking Skills is an award-winning, fantastic resource designed by a family-owned company and their work guarantees results that will benefit children for the rest of their lives. We partner with them as licensed distributors in SA to make it available to more families who want to give their children a better education. 

We have multiple books for Grades 0-12 to help stimulate critical thinking skills in a fun way. Check them out here.

What’s the Love2Learn Engine Room book?

Love2Learn supplies an Engine Room as standard with most of its subjects. It contains easy-to-follow lesson plans which plot your daily course of action, book by book and page by page, over a period of on average, 36 weeks (180 days). It cancels hours of prep time and frees you to expand the lesson content as you see fit. It also serves as your record-keeper for monitoring purposes, as the year progresses.
