Product Description
CRITICAL THINKING: Story Sleuths I Literature (Caldecott books)

STORY SLEUTHS I
is a 4 week, critical thinking project based on Caldecott Award winning books. It is designed to be conducted by an enrichment specialist, librarian, or art teacher. However, it can easily be adapted to single classroom use. Originally intended for students in 1st - 3rd grades, I have found that kindergarten and 4th grade classes enjoy it as well.

Here's how it works:
• After reading a specific set of Caldecott books, students are given 1 week to solve a set of clues that describe 1 of the books. (Some great critical thinking discussions are generated when done as a whole class.)
• At the end of the week, winning classes or teams are announced and awarded a certificate.
• On Monday, a new set of clues is given. Play continues in this way for 4 weeks.

Many levels of Bloom's Taxonomy are employed in this unit. It is CCSS aligned. Students also enjoy great literature, learn about artistic media, and participate in collaborative thinking.
