This classic series will excite students' imaginations while enriching skills in logical thinking. Logic Liftoff problems are easy to incorporate into lesson plans and are formatted to enhance the fullest spectrum of curriculum areas while sharpening thinking skills. Challenging and instructional, these thought-provoking books present sequential exercises in logical reasoning that include relationships, analogies, syllogisms, sequences, deductive reasoning, inference, truth-values, and logical notation. Simple grids coupled with intriguing problems evoke enthusiasm and inspire students to higher and higher levels of thinking. Each book builds on concepts presented previously in the series to offer a comprehensive logic adventure for young thinkers.

The skills students build by using this book are applicable to several areas of the curriculum. Academic skills used in reading, math, writing, and science all depend on the ability to perceive and define relationships, sequence events, and form inferences. But, beyond the academic world, students will find logical thinking an integral part of everyday life.

This is the second in a three-book series designed to sharpen children's logical thinking skills. Once students have mastered Logic Countdown they are ready to meet new challenges in Logic Liftoff and Orbiting with Logic.

Do not purchase ebook!
I purchased the ebook.  I already have the hard copy.  However, the ebook would be great to go with using my Smart Board.  However, due to the download into Adobe Digital Edition, it is difficult to navigate and even get prints from.  I also cannot use it at home because it says it is already downloaded once--at my work, I suppose.  Very user unfriendly.  If this was a PDF file it would definitely have been a 5-star purchase.

Perfect for Homeschoolers!
Logic and critical thinking are important subjects that we always add to our homeschool schedule. The activities found in Logic Liftoff are fun, while stretching the brain and building thinking skills!  I especially like the vast variety of logic skills practiced, including analogies, syllogisms, inference, truth-values, deduction, matrix puzzles and more!  Maybe best of all, the book is easy to use and the lessons don't take much time.  My children beg for logic activities like these! 

Don't miss Logic Countdown (3rd-4th) and Orbiting with Logic (5th-7th) if you like this book!

Review by: Cathy Duffy, Cathy Duffy Reviews - January 1, 2009
Blast Off with Logic is a series of three books that build upon one another at increasing levels of difficulty. Logic Countdown, written for grades 3–4, introduces relationships, analogies, sequencing, "all" and "no" statements, syllogisms, if-then statements, deduction, and making inferences. Logic Liftoff for grades 4–6 reviews and expands all of these topics, continues into deeper logical reasoning, and introduces logical notation. Orbiting with Logic for grades 5–7 builds on the previous two books, expands logical notation, and adds logic diagrams and logical fallacies. While it is possible to use any one of the books alone, they really work best as a sort of continuous course . . . Most of us parents will find many of the lessons new and challenging, so we should tackle them right along with our children to improve our own thinking skills.
