Description & Features

This engaging 288-page book develops critical thinking skills necessary for success in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and standardized tests in Grades 7-12+. The Building Thinking Skills® series is the bestselling thinking skills program in the world! The engaging, highly-effective activities are developmentally sequenced. Each skill (for example, classifying) is presented in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form and in the abstract verbal form in this book's companion Building Thinking Skills® Level 3 Verbal. Students also learn important academic vocabulary, concepts, and skills as they analyze relationships between objects, between words, and between objects and words by: 
     - Observing, recognizing, and describing characteristics
     - Distinguishing similarities and differences
     - Identifying and completing sequences, classifications, and analogies

These processes help students develop superior thinking and communication skills that lead to deeper content learning in all subjects.
