Problem solving is the brain’s favorite activity and the subject of this fun-filled program featuring characters that solve their problems with brainpower instead of brawn. Students exercise their mental muscles as they identify a story’s central conflict, brainstorm possible solutions, predict outcomes, test their hypotheses, and evaluate their solutions. They need those critical thinking skills when Sherry calls on them to figure out how one of her stories ends!
