This PowerPoint slideshow will help your students improve their critical thinking skills. 50 questions about glasses and blinking, monkeys and fish, laughing and thumb-wrestling. Learn why we shake hands (to show you don’t have a knife or club in your hand), why we blink (to lubricate the eye), if animals laugh (they do), if a villain’s laugh is different from a spontaneous laugh (it is), why we cross our fingers (lying or for luck), why we open our eyes so wide when scared (to see), why a dog licks our face (to communicate excitement), and lots of magical optical illusions and interesting questions to engage your students and their curiosity. Use as a warm-up for the whole class or right before recess. 50 different mental challenges. Quick. No prep. Just click-and-go. Take a look at the Preview to see some of the slides in this slideshow.
