The relationship between critical and creative thought can be misunderstood. But in fact, profound thinking requires both imagination and intellectual ideas. To produce excellence in thinking we need to engage our children in a curriculum that overlaps the logical and the imaginative sides of thinking.
Critical & Creative Thinking Activities' forty-six theme-based units will give your child lots of practice thinking in a variety of ways. From brain teasers and logic puzzles to mazes, Venn diagrams, and secret codes, Critical & Creative Thinking Activities has a wealth of mind-boggling activities that your child will enjoy.
Logical Thinking, Problem Solving...
Exercises include thinking fluency, originality, generalizing, patterning, and problem solving. Every lesson is based on grade-appropriate themes and is correlated to state standards. Published by a secular company, Critical & Creative Thinking Activities may include a unit or two that might not be appropriate for all families. Imagination and reason function best in tandem, and Critical & Creative Thinking Activities delivers just that.

”It has been a great choice for keeping my kids engaged this summer, but it will make a great enrichment activity during the regular school year, as well.”Read the Review
Just what I needed to add some fun to our schooling.
I had my fifth grader do about 3 pages of this a week and it was fun for him. Some activities were actually very challenging for me! This was our first year doing critical thinking activities and I am definitely loving adding this to our homeschool!
We enjoy this book to use as a morning "warm-up." Some of the tasks are spiral review that have been learned in previous years, whereas other tasks are new. My son can do the majority of these pages independently. I love the answer key in the back of the book so I can quickly check his work.
Deeply engaging and appropriately challenging! Love how it pushes my daughter to really think through the activities!
Sometimes it’s super hard and one page can take a really long time but my son (10) loves the activities. So much so I just ordered the 4th and 6th grade ones to have on hand
