Bloom's Taxonomy Part 2: Understanding

This is the second in a series of six posts dedicated to Bloom’s Taxonomy: Teaching Higher Order Thinking Skills with Interactive Online Content. The first post on remembering can be viewed here.

Level Two: Understand

This level includes the skills of explaining, predicting, restating, discussing, outlining and comparing. These activities go one step beyond basic skill building by requiring students to demonstrate comprehension of a concept.

Here are two examples of online activities for understanding:

K-2 Give the Dog a Bone

Students demonstrate their understanding of the number line and skip counting by identifying the correct square hiding the given number.

3-6 Complete the Pattern

Students use their knowledge of patterns to complete a given pattern. They can choose from three levels of difficulty.
