Building Thinking Skills {Review}

I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.

The Critical Thinking Co.™

One of my top homeschool goals is to help my kids develop critical thinking skills. I was excited for the opportunity to review Building Thinking Skills Level 2 from The Critical Thinking Co.

Building Thinking Skills Level 2:

This full curriculum program improves a students academic performance. It is recommended for grades 4-6th (ages 9-12). The exercises develop critical thinking skills necessary for success in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and standardized tests. The 412-page book includes ten chapters and an answer key.

Activities cover:

  • Logical Thinking
  • Similarities & Differences
  • Sequences
  • Classifications
  • Analogies
  • Antonyms and Synonyms
  • Spacial awareness
  • Vocabulary Development
  • Following & Writing Directions
  • Descriptive Writing
  • Geometry Concepts
  • Map Reading
  • Graphic Organizers
  • and More

The colored activity sheets are reproducible for single-home/classroom use. A student should be able to complete the activities independently with little parent/teacher assistance.

Our Experience:

Johanna is just over the grade/age suggestion for this program. Although she has used a curriculum from The Critical Thinking Co during a prior review, she is new to their program designed to develop critical thinking skills. I reviewed sample pages and felt she could benefit from this level and still experience some challenge.

When the activity book arrived, Johanna jumped in before I really had a chance to look it over. She was drawn to the colorful pages and engaging activities. In the first chapter, she especially enjoyed the exercises in recognizing the folded patterns and describing positions. She feels some of the activities are like solving a puzzle.
