Book Title: Primarily Logic, Grades 2-4
Publisher: Prufrock Press
Author: Judy Leimbach
It's never too early to start building thinking skills―skills that will spill over into other areas of the curriculum and into real life. Primarily Logic
consists of a series of units designed to introduce logical thinking to young students. It is an excellent, easy-to-use starting point for teaching well-established forms of logical thinking. Each skill is introduced with examples, and then worksheets give students an opportunity to practice the skill. Group lessons and worksheets provide practice in:
- finding relationships,
- thinking logically using "all" and "none" statements,
- syllogisms, and
- deductive reasoning using logic puzzles.
Logical thinking is both enjoyable and challenging for students as they build a sound foundation for further instruction in critical thinking. Suggestions for related activities are included in the Instructions for Teachers section.
