I created this Be a Super Thinker! packet to help my students become critical thinkers. We are working to integrate critical thinking skills into our daily lessons in my district and this is the result of my work so far.
Our classroom procedure is to introduce the thinking skill using the anchor chart, then model, model, model, before expecting my students to utilize the skill on their own. Here are some examples of the learning tasks my students have completed: they compared baby and adult animals, classified geometric shapes and nouns, and completed math analogies. Once they complete their task, we always debrief about what they learned, either orally or in writing.
Critical thinking skills can be integrated into all subject areas and the tasks will give you a window into your students’ minds as they complete them. Using critical thinking skills deepens student understanding and enriches their learning.
This packet includes:
* Anchor Charts and Graphic Organizers
* Analogical Thinking
Just print out and laminate the anchor charts and print the blank graphic organizers so your students can use their own critical thinking skills!
I hope you enjoy Be a Super Thinker! with your students!
