Teacher will keep a record of each child's completion of activity on a rubric with numbers 1-200 by initialing in the box with the card number, once teacher checks for correction. Level decks A, B, C, D, AA, BB, and CC. (3rd through 9th grade)
Visual Thinking allows students to visualize characters, settings, and physical objects. Concepts: congruence, mapping, order, geometric shapes, illusion, magnitude, part-whole relations, patterns/models, reflection/symmetry, rotation/position, & similarity.
Quick Pick: Critical Thinking- Multi-sensory activities geared to Bloom's Taxonomy. Each section includes 20 activity cards that address a different level of critical thinking. Lowest to highest level. Discuss it, do it, draw it, make it, and write it.
