NO-PREP CRITICAL THINKING RESOURCE!
Can you teach someone to think critically? Or is this some innate skill only a few can hope to possess? Some people are born great at something and some have to work hard at it. Whether your students were born to think like a scientist or not, they CAN learn to think critically with practice.
The Think Like A Scientist Series is the practice they need. Deliberately crafted to challenge learners in all the cognitive levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy (Remember, Understand, Apply, Analyze, Evaluate, Create), this daily two-week course will challenge your students to stretch their understanding of the world, take a second—longer—look at things, be patient with themselves, and finally, form an opinion on a topic outside their comfort zone using newly acquired knowledge.
Think Like A Scientist has four volumes for grades 3-5.
VOLUME ONE is called “Learning to Think” and includes units 1-5 in the series:
UNIT ONE - NATURE SCIENCE – BUGS
UNIT TWO - SPACE SCIENCE – MARS
UNIT THREE - PHYSICAL SCIENCE - ATOMS
UNIT FOUR - EARTH SCIENCE – WATER
UNIT FIVE - LIFE SCIENCE – CELLS
Volumes two through four also have five topics and will be structured like this:
Volume Two (Units 6-10) expands on that and introduces finding evidence
Volume Three (Units 11-15) expands on Volumes One and Two and introduces compare and contrast
Volume Four (Units 16-20) expands on all previous volumes and teaches them to answer their own questions
