Grades 3-5

Analytical Thinking

This is symbolic thinking at its best! Abstractions give students the opportunity to think in original ways, looking for visual clues to solve problems.

In one activity called Parents and Children, students look at a tall rectangle (representing an adult) and a small square (representing a child).

They then will match these images with word descriptions. If youngsters find two tall rectangles and two squares, they know the label "parents and children" is the correct answer. If the word description is simply "child," then students will be looking for a single small square.

Note: The activities included here were part of our "What's That?" Enrichment Packet/Level 3. For simplicity, all of our Enrichment Packets are now called "Thinkables." The material itself has not changed.
