Critical Thinking Skills Worksheets
Critical thinking skills impact every area of a child's academic experience. Students who can "do" math, but who don't understand why the math problem works out the way it does lack critical thinking skills. Students who read well, but who don't understand what they read lack critical thinking skills. Students who can put sentences together correctly grammatically, but who can't respond to a writing prompt meaningfully lack critical thinking skills. It is incumbent upon teachers of all subjects to make sure that their students are well-versed in these skills. Recent studies have shown that, worldwide, students who are most capable in the area of problem solving (critical thinking) are the highest performing in core subject areas like math, reading, and science.
Critical Thinking Workbooks - Give as homework or use in the classroom.
Kids pick the pages to complete. Make as many as you want, a new workbook is created each time. The mixed critical thinking skills worksheets will ensure that your students will be sharp and ready for higher level thinking challenges! Brain teasers will become brain pleasers with these creative, stimulating worksheets that students will love to do just for fun.
When students are not taught critical thinking skills at the lower grade levels, teachers at higher grade levels (even at the college level) have to begin their teaching efforts here before they are able to begin core subject instruction. Fortunately, teaching critical thinking skills is anything but rote or boring, and is often best accomplished through games and puzzles. Students as young as preschool can begin learning critical thinking without being aware that they are doing anything other than completing fun games and worksheets. The earlier you start instruction in the area of critical thinking skills, the more naturally your students will begin to think this way in all of their subject areas.
