Logic: A Unit for 4-8 Graders, Especially Gifted and Talented.
Runkle, Susan; Tansey, Pam
The unit on logic is intended to teach critical thinking for gifted and talented students in grades 4-8. Sections are presented separately for students in grades 4-5 and 6-8. The younger students are instructed in such areas as scientific logic, math logic, spatial reasoning, deductive logic, inductive logic, and reasoning with analogies. The section for students in grades 6-8 presents activities designed to teach deductive reasoning, logical thinking (including truth values of "if-then" sentences, arguments, syllogisms, premises, and conclusions), and inductive thinking (including inferences, analogies, fallacies, open-ended problems, and applications). This document is part of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center Project. (CL)
