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.

My son isn’t the best with critical thinking. This does it in a great, grade friendly, way. Each unit is one topic to really help cinch things together. He has issues still but it’s more from him inabilities than the book. We’re slowly getting there and making great strides!
The themes of the lessons are stuff my kid is interested in. We have discussions about math, sentences, why we do things, etc. He really likes them because they aren't centered all around art and coloring like many materials are.
I'll be honest to say i did not care to include this in my curriculum at first. But after going through the book i see the importance of it and how it stimulates but also gets conversation going with your child. I think i will use it on slower days more as fun activities to do when we have down time.
This was my daughters favorite item from our first grade kit. She did an entire subject Everytime not just one page. I had to pry it away from her. I didn't see the appeal at first but she loves it so much we substituted the 2nd grade one into our custom kit.
It is fun and keeps kids interested in the subject.
