Critical & Creative - Grade 6
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.
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.
Complete one themed unit a week, knowing that you’ll finish before the end of the school year.
Forty-six lessons complement language arts, science, and social studies curricula.

”They provide an easy way for this busy Mom to insert important critical thinking skills into our homeschool days- and my children feel like the fun worksheets are a treat, rather than work!”
