Description & Features

Building Thinking Skills® provides highly effective verbal and nonverbal reasoning activities to improve your children’s vocabulary, reading, writing, math, logic, and figural-spatial skills, as well as their visual and auditory processing. This exceptional series provides a solid foundation for academic excellence and success in any assessment.

The activities are developmentally sequenced. Each skill (for example, classifying) is presented first in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form and then in the abstract verbal form. Children learn to analyse relationships between objects, between words, and between objects and words as they:

  • Observe, recognise, and describe characteristics
  • Distinguish similarities and differences
  • Identify and complete sequences, classifications, and analogies

These processes help children develop superior thinking and communication skills that lead to deeper content learning in all subjects.

In this software adventure, you and your team of critical thinkers must complete the verbal and figural activities in each of the ten underground levels to rescue Dr. Cognito and restore order to the lab.

With both verbal and graphic instructions, this lively adventure nurtures independent learning, superior thinking, and communication skills.
