The Girl Who Thought in Pictures: The Story of Dr. Temple Grandin by Julia Finley Mosca
This story is a biography, B GRA, about how Temple Grandin shows her perseverance and how she thinks differently, how her thoughts are in pictures. It is that same ability to think in pictures that led her to solve a real-life problem. And through this discovery, she became an innovator and inventor.
This is a great book about diversity and also overcoming hard situations in life. But it also showcases how people may think differently — how brains and brain functioning is diverse, “Then, little by little, though sometimes she balked, special teachers helped Temple, and one day she talked! And that thing with her brain… it was AUTISM, see?…She was DIFFERENT NOT LESS,” they all finally agreed.”
This week we will work to get better at solving problems. If you work puzzles, the practice can improve your ability to solve authentc or real-life problems. In that way puzzles can make you a bit smarter, depending on the type and difficulty of the puzzles solved.
A logical puzzle is a problem that can be solved through deductive reasoning. Logic puzzles require the solver to deduce the relationships between different people, places and things! Let’s challenge our thinking as we practice and explore the world of logic puzzles!
