Attribute Block Thinking Activities--Analogies. Grades K-3.
Designed to develop K-3 children's thinking skills before the children have mastered reading, this book presents 32 activities in which children learn to complete analogies--presented with an "attribute block" with 3 attributes, children choose a fourth attribute block to complete the analogy. The attribute blocks in the book are of 4 types--shape (circle, hexagon, rectangle, square, and triangle), color (red, blue, and yellow), size (big and small), and thickness (thick and thin). Activities in the book increase in difficulty and can be cut out from the book and used again and again with no additional preparation. The book begins with advice on getting started and a brief discussion of analogies. An answer key is attached. (RS)
