Approach analogies as puzzles. To solve them, students need to use cognitive processes and critical-thinking skills. These exercises present word and/or picture relationships in several different ways. The goal is to develop skills in visual imagery, reading comprehension, vocabulary development, reasoning, and test-taking.
Analogies are types of comparisons that allow us to find the likenesses between two unlike things. They also make for fantastic interdisciplinary teaching tools! Students will have fun flexing their critical-thinking skills by finding connections between two pairs of words or images. The activities in this book will help students develop, reinforce, and expand skills in the areas of visual literacy, reading comprehension, reasoning, vocabulary development, and overall attention to detail. The analogies found in this book cover the areas of math, science, social studies, health, and language arts. Students even get the opportunity to be the teacher by creating their own analogies. This book includes blank answer sheets and a complete answer key. This resource is 64 pages in all. Reprinted in 2019.
