Analogies for Critical Thinking Grade 4
Analogies are types of comparisons that allow us to find the likenesses between two unlike things. They also make for fantastic interdisciplinary teaching tools! Students will have fun flexing their critical-thinking skills by finding connections between two pairs of words. The activities in this book will help students develop, reinforce, and expand skills in the areas of reading comprehension, reasoning, vocabulary development, and overall attention to detail. The analogies found in this book cover the areas of math, science, social studies, health, and language arts. Students even get the opportunity to be the teacher by creating their own analogies. This book includes blank answer sheets and a complete answer key. This resource is 64 pages in all.
