Let's Think

Take a fresh look. The Let's Think series motivates students to think of new ways of doing things, to think outside the square, to look at the world through new eyes and to ask "Why"? or "Why not"? A range of thinking skills is covered, from questioning to problem-solving. Activities across the series link together, making it easy for teachers to plan lessons or units at all primary levels.

Ages: 5-12 years
