    Default Secular logic curriculum?

    I'm looking for a secular logic curriculum for my 5th grader for next year. Anyone know of one? I tried searching through the curriculum reviews but there didn't appear to be any in there.

    I suggest looking at Critical Thinking Company. The have a large selection of resources to choose from.

    I forgot, the Illustrated Guide to Bad Arguments is excellent.

    I have never used this one, but it looks interesting.

    This is more sophisticated, but helpful.

    Thanks for the recommendations, guys. I forgot about this thread until now. I definitely want to get the Illustrated Guide to Bad arguments lol.

    We've had lots of great discussions over the years using the book modules from Mount Holyoke's Teaching Philosophy to Children project. There are only two specifically for logic (one using the picture book Snow to introduce the Sorites Paradox), but many of them contain questions regarding multiple aspects and schools of philosophical thought. They basically use books--mostly picture books--as easy-to-grasp stories that offer windows into more complicated questions. :-) All free discussions/downloads.
