Logic recommendations for 7th grade beginner


Recommended Posts

We did some logic worksheets/Outschool one off classes last spring and DD 11 liked them. Any recs for upcoming seventh grader but relatively new to logic workbook that's not too babyish but also can get her feet wet in a variety of logic type problems.

The Dandelion Press Blast Off with Logic series is nice, with a variety of logic problem types in each book:
Logic Countdown (gr. 3-4)
Logic Liftoff (gr. 4-6)
Orbiting with Logic (gr. 5-7)

I would actually recommend doing all 3 -- book 1 would be simple/fast, but it is not baby-ish. Book 3 is actually pretty challenging in parts, so it would be helpful to have done at least book 2, if not both book 1 and 2, beforehand, to build understanding.

Also:

Critical Thinking Activities in Pattern, Imagery, Logic (Seymour). If the grade 7-12 level is a bit too much for your student, you might start with the grade 4-6 book first. (The grade 1-3 book would definitely be way below your 7th grader's level.)

 

@Plagefille's suggestion of Basics of Critical Thinking from Critical Thinking Company (CTC) looks good. From CTC, we also enjoyed the variety of puzzles in the Dr. Funster's Think-A-Minute series. The C-1 and C-2 books are for gr. 6-8 -- the earlier levels would likely be too easy for your rising 7th grader. (Note: the other Dr. Funster books other than the Think-A-Minutes are books that all center around a single type of logic puzzle.)

This^^^ 

And if your dc really likes the tables there is Logic on Meadowbrook Lane by the same publisher or Perplexors A or B (by Mindware)

We like the Basics of Critical Thinking from Critical Thinking Co

We used Basics of Critical Thinking in grade 6 and loved it.

I am actually looking at what to do with him in grade 7. I with CTC had a next level for this book.
