Critical & Creative Thinking Activities, Grade 2 - By Evan-Moor
Sample Pages

The relationship between critical and creative thought can be misunderstood. But in fact, profound thinking requires both imagination and intellectual ideas. To produce excellence in thinking we need to engage our children in a curriculum that overlaps the logical and the imaginative sides of thinking.

Forty-six Units
Critical & Creative Thinking Activities' forty-six theme-based units will give your child lots of practice thinking in a variety of ways. From brainteasers and logic puzzles to mazes, Venn diagrams, and secret codes, Critical & Creative Thinking Activities has a wealth of mind-boggling activities that your child will enjoy.

Logical Thinking, Problem Solving...
Exercises include thinking fluency, originality, generalizing, patterning, and problem solving. Every lesson is based on grade-appropriate themes and is correlated to state standards. Published by a secular company, Critical & Creative Thinking Activities may include a unit or two that might not be appropriate for all families. Imagination and reason function best in tandem, and Critical & Creative Thinking Activities delivers just that.
Features

Forty-six lessons complement language arts, science, and social studies curricula.

Makes Thinking Fun March 4, 2015
Reviewer: MandyJHoffman  
Like what has already been stated, this workbook is designed for a classroom setting and some of the activities are can't be done because of this. However, there were still plenty more to do. I liked the fact that it wasn't just abstract skills, but almost each time they incorporated practical, everyday thinking skills that kids are using now. It was nice to have them doing activities that applied to NOW rather than "someday you'll need this". There were some sheets that I thought were quite challenging and my child was not able to do the work as independently as I had hoped he could do. So while it was nice, since it's not required and took more time than I could spare, I won't be using it again this year. Although, I might throw in a left-over sheet here and there just for filler when I need it, but not as a set curriculum. This would make a good summer material to help students stay fresh.

Busy work February 23, 2015
Reviewer: Annie B.  
Critical & Creative is filled with fun thinking activites. They are.pretty easy. My daughter likes the activities. However, I feel like many are designed around public school, not homeschool. We mostly used these as extra work. With 6 children, sometimes they need something productive to keep them busy while Mom is working with other kids.

just OK, not fantastic May 25, 2014
Reviewer: A K.  
Although there are a few activities that would require critical thinking, I was not impressed. Much of this book is centered around the "Public Sschool Classroom", so it is not good for the homeschooler, in my opinion.

These worksheets are fun! January 16, 2013
Reviewer: Mandy  
My boys, ages 8 & 6, look forward to doing these worksheets. They enjoy the fun themes while still using their brains in challenging ways. These worksheets are a fun break into our structured day. I would highly recommend these workbooks!

Nice simple addition to homeschool January 14, 2013
Reviewer: scrapbooking mom  
I bought this for my 2nd grade son. He does one page a day. It can be completed in just a few minutes. It seems a bit too easy for him but does make him reason and use critical thinking. I might consider purchasing the level above next time. There was 2 pages with ghosts and jack-o-lanterns on it that I tore out that I would have preferred not having in there. My son enjoys doing it - it's usually the one subject he completes first each day.
