This engaging 416-page book develops critical thinking skills necessary for success in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and standardized tests in Grades 4-6. 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 first in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form. 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.
