Product Description
Teaching critical thinking is very important and needs to start early but explaining the concept can be tricky for primary grades. In this unit students use their critical thinking skills to understand the difference between reality and fantasy using unicorns and narwhals as examples. The students are presented with a worksheet with questions about unicorns and are asked to answer if the information is fantasy or reality. After they answer the questions they scan the QR answer card to find the answers. The students then answer questions about narwals and scan the QR answer sheet. Alternatively, a teacher answer sheet is provided for discussion. Through the activities, students will understand the difference between fantasy and reality and then go further into understanding how to spot the difference in other types of information they may encounter.

Included in the unit:

Classroom posters
Task cards- Students sort them into fantasy or reality
