Being introduced to analogies helps kids use logical reasoning into their thinking process. It presents parallels and guidelines to comparisons of objects, situations, words. Teaching analogies has infinite benefits, from better critical thinking, to scientific inquiry and better test taking skills. Up to know, we worked with worksheets from “Build Thinking Skills” books and while they were good resource, the new analogies apps are even better resource. There is no more black and white sheets or photocopies :).
