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.
Forty-six lessons complement language arts, science, and social studies curricula.

It's not a good fit for us. It feels like busy work, and we'll probably skip it next year.
My son has this one and my daughter has the third grade version. They both do very well with these books. I like this one way better than the second grade building thinking skills (daughter did that one last year, not a huge fan personally). These are much more fun and the kids enjoy them.
My daughter enjoys this book! I love seeing her figure things out and getting creative:)
This book is cute, and in general, we love Evan Moor products, but the questions seemed too juvenile for 1st grade. We found most of the activities to be on the creative end and not so much on the critical end, which we would have preferred for more challenge.
I love an assignment that really gets the kids thinking and forces creativity. This is one of my favorite books for 1st grade! I look over the topics and plan them into my lessons based on holidays/seasons/etc..... We complete one topic each week (3 pages). I love that the worksheets are quick, many can be done independently, but most of all they are fun. This would be perfect morning work or a transition activity.
