Let's Think Cover

The Let's Think! series of books:

  • Is an effective tool in teaching thinking skills in a mainstream classroom programme or as part of a thinking skills programme.
  • Contains activities that cover a range of thinking skill topics, including fluency, flexibility, originality, problem-solving, visualisation, questioning, reasoning, attribute listing, decision-making and analytical thinking.
  • Provides easy-to-use reproducible activities for each level of the primary school
  • Recognises the importance of the four learning styles (visual, auditory, tactual, and kinaesthetic), and so contains activities that meet the learning needs of these different styles.

Let's Think! is series of three books that encourages children at all levels of the primary school to think of new ideas and ways of doing things, to think outside the square, to look at the world they live in through new eyes, and to ask Why? or Why Not? Each book focuses on developing different thinking skills, (e.g., questioning, reasoning, problem-solving), but the activities across the series link together so that teachers can plan entire lessons or units by using activities from all three books.
