Category Review

This series focuses on many of the individual skills wrapped up in the general term "critical thinking" (while also appearing to be just plain fun!). Each 30-page book holds thirty worksheets, all covering the same topic through a different engaging activity. While sharpening critical thinking skills, these exercises will also naturally improve children's reading, writing, reasoning, and test scores. No preparation is required and the answers are in the back of the book, so these activities are ready when you are. ~ Steph

Before embarking on a “formal” logic course, my husband and I decided it would be best to give our fifth grader an “introduction to logic.” While doing an internet search, I came across “The Critical Thinking Series” by Remedia Publications. “The Critical Thinking Series” is based on Bloom’s Taxonomy of thinking skills. The activities begin at a simple, concrete level and as the student’s abilities increase, more abstract and complex activities are introduced. The series consist of sixteen work texts: Analogies, Classification, Absurdities, Similarities and Differences, Sequence, Drawing Solutions, Using Logic, Finding Facts, Following Directions, Relying on Reason, Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis and Evaluation. Each work text is consumable and includes the answer key. “The Critical Thinking Series” will give your student a firm foundation to think logically while preparing them for “formal” logic. I would recommend following this series with “Critical Thinking Book 1 and Book 2” by Anita Harnadek.
