Builds vocabulary and reading comprehension skills!
This fun, engaging app teaches students an in-depth understanding of the basis of an analogy as it develops razor-sharp analogy, vocabulary, word analysis, and comprehension skills for the highest academic and test performance. Students who learn strategies to make and complete analogies benefit in many ways. They sharpen their reasoning skills as they analyze the subtleties of language and relationship presented in analogies. As students learn to understand simple word analogies, they move toward understanding more complex analogous relationships presented in literature, science, and history. Analogies are also a key component of many assessment and ability tests.
In each puzzle, students analyze 30 potential analogy pairs, evaluate word meanings and relationships to find the best matches, and then classify each analogy by type. The deeper analysis required to classify an analogy produces a better understanding of analogies and develops a host of critical thinking skills.
Analogy types include kind of, part of, synonym of, antonym of, symbol of, product of, person who, something used to, degree of, property of.
