    15 Exciting Primary School Critical Thinking Activities

    There's no doubt about it, critical thinking tops the list of skills our learners need to succeed. Educators all over the globe agree this ability is paramount to a child's faculty for surviving and thriving during and beyond the formative school years.

    Here's the best news of all: Age is no barrier—young or old, there’s never a bad or wrong time to begin learning to think critically.

    The best way to develop critical thinking skills in our young learners is to teach the process in ways that they’ll definitely enjoy. There must be plenty of opportunities for play and the use of their imaginations, as well as lots of open questions. You'll find all this and much more in our Critical Thinking Brain Boosters downloadable resource package for primary school grades.
