    I would certainly recommend this product for grade levels middle school and up. It will require no alteration for those age groups. For children under that age it will require some alteration to match the elementary school children's vocabulary. It's a great book.

    My family is enjoying this book. It's great for helping kids to recognize flaws in arguments and increases their ability to listen to what the other person is really saying.

Q: Is this a consumable workbook? I want to use this with three kids. Do I need to buy one per child or can I purchase one to use with all three?

A:

This book is not consumable. The activities can be used by a single student to reason through on their own or they can be used for group discussion.
