Using the cards stimulated imagination, generated discussion and lots of ideas. I think they are a valuable resource for structuring thinking and making the skill explicit.
Thinking Cards have been created to support pupils and teachers in the acquisition and development of Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities.
Thinking Cards are a cross-phase resource. This means that they can be used by pupils and teachers from any Key Stage, at primary or post-primary level. Teachers should select the set of cards that they feel are most appropriate to the stage that their pupils are at in terms of higher order thinking skills.
There are many resources in this Thinking Cards section that will assist you in getting to grips with the Thinking Cards. We hope that you find them a thought-provoking and stimulating resource.
