Critical Thinking – Making Connections

Traditional school days of the past were subdivided into sections of about an hour.  During these sections students would study the different subjects such as reading, math, science, etc.

Today’s educators recognize that learning doesn’t really fall into strict categories.  The activities of daily life are often a combination of skills from several different subject areas.

Say, for example, you were to bake some cookies.  You would need to read the directions, use math to double to batch, science to understand how the leavening agent works, and social and psychological skills to recognize that cookies make us feel good!

Name some other familiar activities and identify the skills and subject-area knowledge necessary for each.

Play A Game – Hand Off Dishes

Player One starts by naming a favorite food dish (containing more than one ingredient) and name an ingredient in that food.

  • I like spaghetti because of the meatballs.

Player Two must then name another ingredient of the first food and then continue the chain with a new food.

  • I like spaghetti because it has tomato sauce. When I eat a salad, I like to crunch on croutons.

Player Three:

  • When I eat salad, I make sure there is broccoli in it. I think I’ll make stew with lots of carrots!


Slurping the noodles is my favorite part of eating spaghetti. Macaroni and cheese noodles are shaped differently.
