SEP 26, 2021 Version 2.8 UPDATE:

There are a lot of files in this product. It can be confusing.

Look at the lesson plans for FREE here in FOLDER 5.

NEW! When you buy the main 6Cs CRITICAL THINKING UNIT product, you get a FILE TABLE of CONTENTS (PDF).

  • It has "one-click copy links" to help you quickly find each file you need for a lesson.

  • It has a tutorial video showing you how to use the "one-click copy links"

If you have any questions, please email me at Mike@educircles.org

NOTE: This product (FOLDER 5) only includes the lesson plans (PDF). It does not include any of the the slideshow or handout files.

This product is SO BIG that it has too many files for Teachers pay Teachers to list in a single Google Drive product. (The TpT limit is 30 files.) 

If you are interested in this product, please purchase the main product using this link:

Educircles.org 6Cs Critical Thinking unit

You need all 5 folders for this unit. Look at the preview file to see what I mean.

NOTE: Please do NOT buy this google drive folder product separately.

  • Splitting the files up into separate TpT Google Drive folder products is a temporary workaround to a technical limitation. (See below.) If TpT allows sub-folders or zipped files in their Google Drive product listing, this individual folder product will be discontinued and not receive any updates.

  • You need to go back and get the full product using the above link so you can access all of the files (and all of the future updates.)

  • If you bought one of the Google Drive folder products by accident, you can still get access to all of the files (if you bought this product within 1 year.) Go back and purchase the main product using the link above. The main product gives you access to all of the Google Drive folder products. Then, contact TpT support and request a refund for this Google Drive folder product. You'll be able to get a refund because it contains duplicate content with the main product. If there are any problems, please contact me at support@educircles.org

Why did I have to split my product into separate parts? No one else does it like this...

  • Right now, TpT has a technical restriction on the number of files I can put into a single Google Drive folder. (They only let you have 30 files - no subfolders or zipped files.)

  • I have 95 files in this product.

  • In order for the TpT system to create a copy of these Google Drive files for you, there has to be less than 30 files in the folder.

  • So, I had to split my product into separate parts. Sorry for the inconvenience. But, this means you can click the "Add to Google Drive" button in the product listing and TpT will automagically copy all of the files into your own Google Drive!

If you have any questions, please ask below or email me at Mike@educircles.org
