To foster higher-order thinking skills through games and teamwork.
To reinforce positive social skills.
This course aims to foster young children’s higher order thinking skills (H.O.T.) through games in which they understand facts, categorize facts or concrete items, apply facts as we search for solutions to hypothesis, and put together facts or items in creative ways (Anderson, et al., 2001). Students will work in pairs or small teams to solve problems and work towards a common goal. Such cooperative learning will help develop students’ speaking and listening skills, interdependence, and positive social skills.
Target Participants / Prerequisite
Students completed K2-K3 who are interested in learning higher order thinking skills are welcome.
