Why is it important to understand analogies?
Analogies provide a pathway for students to enhance their critical thinking skills, and can also help build on creativity. Analogies can measure and enhance reasoning ability and vocabulary skills. Concepts such a part/whole, opposites, synonyms, antonyms, and functions are used in analogies. These skills help children make connections and lead to deeper thinking.
