Have you ever heard the legend of why the evergreen trees stay green?
This is a fun, holiday story that you can share with your class- but what if you could share the story AND take your students to a deeper level of critical thinking?
thinkLaw takes critical thinking strategies that are taught in law schools across the country and breaks them down in ways that are age and developmentally appropriate for all students- even as young as pre-K!
Critical thinking is the precursor to innovation, a key to college and career readiness and has been linked to more positive life outcomes. The complex global challenges we face today have placed a peak demand for critical thinkers. Research shows that critical thinking development begins at an early age, but too often adults discount young children’s ability to think critical and as a result do not intentionally focus on critical thinking.
Share The Legend of the Evergreens but don't allow your students to be passive listeners- push them to go deeper as they go through the steps of making and evaluating difficult decisions! The lesson is easily used and adapted across many grade levels- as young as pre-k and as old as 4th grade!
