Description and Features

Building Thinking Skills® provides highly effective verbal and nonverbal reasoning activities to improve students’ vocabulary, reading, writing, math, logic, and figural-spatial skills, as well as their visual and auditory processing. This exceptional series provides a solid foundation for academic excellence and success in any assessment.

The activities are developmentally sequenced. Each skill (for example, classifying) is presented first in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form and then in the abstract verbal form. Students learn to 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.

In this software adventure, you and your team of critical thinkers must complete the verbal and figural activities in each of the ten underground levels to rescue Dr. Cognito and restore order to the lab.

With both verbal and graphic instructions, this lively adventure nurtures independent learning, superior thinking, and communication skills.

     - Multi-user login
     - Can be played in adventure mode or practice mode
     - Detailed spoken and graphical instructions for each question
