This engaging 384-page book develops critical thinking skills necessary for success in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and standardized tests in Grades 7-12.  The Building Thinking Skills® series is the bestselling thinking skills program in the world! The engaging, highly-effective activities are developmentally sequenced. Each skill (for example, classifying) is presented in the abstract verbal form and in the abstract figural (spatial) form in this book’s companion Building Thinking Skills® Level 3 Figural. Students also learn important academic vocabulary, concepts, and skills as they analyze relationships between objects, between words, and between objects and words by:
     - Observing, recognizing, and describing characteristics
     - Distinguishing similarities and differences
     - Identifying and completing sequences, classifications, and analogies


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