CRITICAL THINKING with TRIADS I
Combine critical thinking
with vocabulary development
and have fun doing it with TRIADS I
. Teach your students to use Bloom's upper level skills -- analysis, evaluation, and creation with TRIADS I
. At the same time, they will be exploring word relationships.
The challenge in this activity is to find 1 word that can be added to each of the TRIAD
words to make a well-known phrase or compound word. The common word may be added before or after the TRIAD
word. For example: add GRASS
to the TRIAD
words blue, hopper,
to make blueGRASS, GRASShopper
, and crabGRASS.
are CCSS aligned. This is a great activity for a literacy center, enrichment, and/or GATE. It could also be used as an anchor or sponge activity and provides a great challenge for fast finishers.
Both color and black line sets are included. Reproduce the cards on cardstock, laminate, and use for years to come. You may wish to print the black line cards on colored cardstock. Naturally, an answer key is included.
My students love to do these together. You can almost see the cogs turning inside their heads! Be sure to check out my other TRIADS
