Looking for some December-themed problems to promote problem solving and critical thinking in your classroom?
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.
This December-themed pack includes 4 problem solving and critical thinking tasks: traditional problem solving scenarios, logic line-up tasks, number clue puzzles, and logic puzzles. There are five differentiated pages in each task set to meet the needs of a variety of learners. In addition, a solution guide is included for your convenience.
