Developing solid critical thinking and problem solving skills in the early grades is essential to support higher-level mathematics in the later ones. Problem solving and critical thinking activities can be infused in a variety of ways. The most important thing is to get our students thinking and communicating about their thinking as often as we can. This sampler pack provides seven different types of critical thinking and problem solving tasks that are sure to engage your students’ strategic thinking and problem solving skills. All of these tasks can be used as starters, included on a math menu, or used on a menu of problem solving station options.
