Approach analogies as puzzles. To solve them, students need to use cognitive processes and critical-thinking skills. These exercises present word and/or picture relationships in several different ways. The goal is to develop skills in visual imagery, reading comprehension, vocabulary development, reasoning and test-taking.

Understanding and decoding analogies is a skill that is transferable to reading comprehension, critical thinking, and creativity. Analogies can be expressed in visual, symbolic, numerical, verbal, and inferential terms. Analogies help students develop the ability to make and appreciate connections between and among a variety of stimuli. As students become more adept at using, creating, and deciphering analogies, the process of transferring and expressing the inherent nature of analogies becomes a "thinking game" for them. The game can be successfully played at almost any level of thinking. The use of analogy-based thinking can then be applied effectively to thinking about ideas and concepts in the array of facts, terms, and information presented throughout the various curricula students encounter at any grade in school. This book is divided into five main sections based upon the type of relationship described by the analogies in it: Part to Whole / Whole to Part; Synonyms / Antonyms; Cause to Effect / Effect to Cause; Purpose, Use or Function; and Degree; Part to Whole / Whole to Part. The analogies in this section describe the relationship between a thing and a piece or building block of that thing and vice versa; Synonyms / Antonyms. The analogies in this section describe the relationship between a thing and something that is similar in meaning (Synonym) or a thing and something that is opposite in meaning (Antonym); Cause to Effect / Effect to Cause. The analogies in this section describe the relationship between an event or happening and a resulting change or outcome and vice versa; Purpose, Use or Function. The analogies in this section describe the relationship between an object or a concept and how it works or why it exists; Degree. The analogies in this section describe the relationship between an object or an idea and the increasing or decreasing value of that object or idea. Understanding and decoding analogies is a skill transferable to reading comprehension, critical thinking, and creativity. Opportunities to create analogies are provided as well as structured and open-ended practice.
