Product Description
Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins...

This Science unit uses these principles, and visual frameworks to develop critical thinking skills for Primary aged children. It’s a perfect blend of thinking skills and solid Science in one unit.

The foundation of each of these activities is the graphic organizers. Here’s a list of the 6 areas with examples of graphic organizers you can use to teach them.

Description – picture, plan, drawing, slide, map, labels
Sequence – flow chart, cycle, action strip, timeline
Choice – decision tree, flow chart
Classification – web, table, tree, graph, database
Principles – diagram, graph, table, cycle
Evaluation – rating grid, chart, marks bookThe unit is built on the principles of Mohan’s

Knowledge Framework which is divided into six areas:
1. DESCRIPTION - In order to fully understand what you are studying the students need to know all the proper vocabulary to describe their thinking. This set of lessons is designed to assess the students’ knowledge and ensure that they have the essential vocabulary to learn about the topic.
2. SEQUENCE - When learning about sequence, the students are building their knowledge about the logical order of things. They are also building on the vocabulary involved like the words “first, then, next after, last...” Being able to organize information into a logical sequence is a higher level thinking skill.
3. CHOICE - Making a choice, or a decision is a very difficult skill for some people. Working on this skill is an important step in critical thinking development.
4. CLASSIFICATION - Being able to sort and classify objects into categories is an important critical thinking skill.
5. PRINCIPLES - Principles are a series of steps created to achieve a goal. In this lesson the students can follow the steps to create a drawing of a cat. Being able to follow directions in a set order is an important higher-level thinking skill.
6. EVALUATION – this is a skill for the students, not for the teacher. This type of lesson could be used for the teacher’s assessment, but it is initially for building up the skill of evaluating for the child. Evaluation is when the students take all the skills and knowledge that they have learned and put it all together. This is how they synthesize their knowledge.
In this unit there are tons of cut and paste activities, sorting and classifying activities, tallies, full color and black and white versions for the teachers, mini books, tons of images of cats and resources for the teacher.
