Abstract

Practically every human activity involves usage of thinking skills. What are thinking skills? They are essentially mental processes that we do: classifying objects, observing properties, encoding information, comparing, taking decisions, making inferences and solving problems. Thinking skills can be viewed as the building blocks of the whole canvas of thinking. These thinking skills are broadly classified into two categories: lower order thinking skills and higher order thinking skills.
