Analysis is the ability to break a whole into its component parts and understand how each functions as part of the whole. The ability to reason logically is a major skill at this step of the critical thinking process.
The 27 lessons in this unit include a variety of analogies and puzzles. As students work the exercises they learn to examine the whole, make judgments about the pieces, and finally see how these pieces relate to each other.
“Hoot. Clang. Creak. Yelp. Whinny…: A door that needs oiling would ____. A hungry
Horse would ____. A frightened puppy would ____.”
These sequential activities are sure to improve thinking and logic skills. And, because they seem more like games than work, students will have loads of fun.
