Free Homeschool Reasoning Skills Toolbox Ebook

Homeschool Freebie of the Day has a cool reasoning skills freebie with several lessons in it for us today. I think it would be cool to use in a brick and mortar classroom as well :)
     This PDF Ebook has some sample chapters from “The Thinking Toolbox” by Nathaniel & Hans Bluedorn! Here’s what they say about this excellent book:
     "This book is like a toolbox, full of different kinds of tools you can use for different thinking tasks. Just as you use the wrench in a regular tool box to fix the sink, so you can use the tools we give you in this book to solve thinking problems.

When it is dumb to argue
Using the scientific method
Five rules of brainstorming
Who has a reason to lie?
How to analyze opposing viewpoints
How to analyze evidence and sources
How to list reasons why you believe something
And much more

We wrote this book for children and adults who want to learn logic and critical thinking skills. The Thinking Toolbox follows the same style as The Fallacy Detective with lessons and exercises and an answer key in the back. Parents and teachers, as well as anybody who wants to learn logic, will find The Thinking Toolbox easy to use and practical. For ages 12 and up."
