Logic and Reasoning

Thinking and problem-solving helps children take in information and understand how things in their world are related. Young children use their logic and reasoning skills in everyday experiences when they build with blocks, complete a puzzle, or discover that peeling the paper from around a crayon gives them more crayon to draw with.
