Brain Benders for Beginners! has been developed to enrich higher-order thinking skills in young children and build on their natural excitement for learning. Underpinned by the work of Bloom, Gardner, Dalton and Vygotsky, this lively book has been designed for children who are in their first years of school, although the open-ended nature of most of the problems makes them suitable for use with a wide variety of ages.
There are 30 topics each with 3 types of task:
- Sit and Think
- Go and Find Out
- Make and Create
This resource helps children develop skills in critical and higher-level thinking, inquiry process, communication and presentation.
