Critical Thinking Games

Am I the only one, or are your kids starting to tune you out too?  I think it might have something to do with their only being 28 days of school left.  Anyways, the one thing that really still grabs my students attentions are critical thinking games.  So, this week our computer center is Cool Math Games 4 Kids.  If you’ve never visited their site – it’s an amazing compilation of math games that work on tons of math skills, including critical thinking.  Here are three of the games they feature on their site.
Be warned – these games are addictive to ADULTS as well as children, and can be played happily for hours, thereby draining you of your grading time!  Smile

B-Cubed - Critical Thinking Game for KidsB-Cubed is a great critical thinking game.  It is like a 3-d maze.  Every time you move the yellow cube on top of a grey cube, it makes the grey cube disappear.  The object of the game is to make all o the grey cubes disappear before you make the red cube disappear.

Bloxorz - Critical Thinking Game
Bloxorz is a greatly addictive strategy game.  You must twist and turn the tall box to get it through the hole.  There are many, many levels!

Phit - Critical Thinking Game for Kids
Phit is a tetris-like game where you use all the pieces and try to get them to fit into the yellow box.  It’s a great visual thinking game!
