Critical Thinking Books Curriculum

Teach critical thinking skills to your children. It is important for them to learn to think creatively. Being able to think creatively or critically is an important tool to combat "sheep thinking," which is thinking like the rest of the sheep and doing what your peers do. It is also important for those who aspire to be inventors, problem solvers, and movers and shakers.

Mind Benders Series Books 1-8

"These fun, popular 'mind-bending' activities will do great things for your students' deductive reasoning, reading comprehension, organization, and information processing skills. Mastery of these skills is vital to achieving high grades and top test scores in all subjects- and for handling real-life problems with success."

Answers are included in each book. If you are familiar with solving the type of problem where you figure out which object belongs to which person, then you won't necessarily need the warm up book. My older children and I did these at the same time to see who could come up with the correct answer first.

All of the books in this series are reproducible for single-classroom use.
