At a very young age, children encounter the need to follow verbal directions. As they grow, the directions become more complex. The 23 lessons in this unit use math, language, art, and listening skills - as well as reasoning, logic, and visualization - to develop critical thinking. The primary purpose of each activity is to focus on following directions. Example:Count all the members of your family - even your pets. How many feet are in your family? The activities featured begin at a fairly simple level and gradually become more difficult.
