This study forms part of research to implement classes aimed at developing reasoning skills in children. This short thesis first looks at prior investigations of reasoning skills, which are a constant challenge for children. Following this, it discusses the design of a classroom curriculum to develop reasoning skills that focuses on the use of Harry Stottlemeier's Discovery of the Philosophy for Children Program. The curriculum targeted reasoning skills that are often difficult for children to learn, including the detection of underlying assumptions, the identification of suitable reasons, syllogistic reasoning (categorical), and the contradiction of statements. In order to do so, chapters 1, 8 and 9 of the program were used in class. The results showed that the average scores on reasoning skills tests conducted both before and after the class were significantly different and that reasoning skills development through in-class study was effective.
