The research sample was chosen after they were distributed Randomly among three groups, two groups of (66) students were selected. The investigator prepared teaching plans for those topics, and teaches the two groups and then tested the pupils of the two groups at the end of the experiment. The paper concludes with a summary of the implications of the findings for the future of learning and teaching and recommendations relevant to advancing teaching for critical thinking with children.
