Builds vocabulary and reading comprehension skills!
ThinkAnalogy™ Puzzles is a fun, engaging app that helps students truly understand the basis of an analogy. These activities develop razor-sharp analogy, vocabulary, word analysis, and comprehension skills for the highest academic and test performance.
In each activity students analyze 30 potential analogy pairs, evaluate word meanings and relationships to find the best matches, then classify each analogy by type. The deeper analysis required to classify an analogy produces a better understanding of analogies and develops a host of critical thinking skills.
Analogy types include kind of, part of, synonym of, antonym of, symbol of, product of, person who, something used to, degree of, property of.
