Quick Tricks To Help Your Child Ace Critical Thinking
1. Observe and draw conclusions. When children begin to make detailed observations about objects or information, they are then able to draw conclusions or make judgments based on those observations.
2. Compare and contrast items and topics. A simple example of this activity is to have children compare and contrast an apple and an orange. Allow child to describe all the ways they are similar and different.
3. Learn cooperatively. Providing cooperative learning opportunities will help children develop critical thinking skills as they share ideas and learn from each another.
4. Discuss and analyze stories. Have children retell a story you have read in their own words. This encourages a child to summarize the main ideas of the story instead of just responding to specific questions with facts.
