I've been looking at curriculum for logic and critical thinking lately but it's just too much money. I have a few pieces of curriculum I need to buy and when our inkjet printer finally runs out of ink I'm shelling out money for a monochrome laser printer so our homeschool budget is shot for awhile. So I had an idea I thought I'd share.
I grabbed some scissors and cut some paper into a pile of slips. On each slip I wrote a different activity related to logic, reasoning and critical thinking and then the whole shebang went in a bag. At the end of school stuff a couple of times a week Catherine gets to stick her hand in and pull out a random piece of paper. Whatever is on the paper, she does.
What I put on the paper:
Zoombinis (3 slips because we have all 3 games)
Logic Puzzle (Enchanted Learning has some and a Google search usually reveals more)
Checkers (a game with me)
I plan to add some more games, kinds of puzzles, pages from some puzzle books, etc.
Any ideas for additions to the bag are welcome!
