This engaging 416-page book develops critical thinking skills necessary for success in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and standardized tests in Grades 4-6. The Building Thinking Skills® series is the bestselling thinking skills program in the world! The engaging, highly-effective activities are developmentally sequenced.
