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 brainteasers 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.

My son completes each assignment without me asking him to. He enjoys this book :)
What I appreciate is that this works both the logical and the creative sides of my kids' brains. My kid who likes logic gets stretched to come up with many good answers to the creative questions instead of just one correct answer. I find I learn things about my kids as I read their answers.
My son is considered 5th grade and the activities are quite challenging. He enjoys the math oriented lessons. This is the first curriculum I have found that incorporates critical thinking. My daughter is not as strong in critical thinking skills so I would probably get her the 3rd or 4th grade equivalent.
I think this is my daughter's favorite time of our school day! She is always trying to move on after completing one lesson. I love the way it makes her have to really stop and think to solve a problem or answer a question.
We love the topics and the creative way it opens up discussions.
