Abstract: Critical thinking has become an important issue within Singapore recently and, in particular, within the context of the Singapore educational system. The Singapore government has made it clear that critical thinking skills in students should be fostered and developed by the schools. Opportunities in a variety of disciplines exist for the teaching of critical thinking that may not only benefit students, but the nation as well. But what is this concept called "critical thinking"? How can it relate to the area of physical education and sport? How can critical thinking be used in the gymnasium, playing field, or within the physical education lesson? This article will attempt to answer these questions and will provide suggestions on how teachers can assist students to apply critical thinking as they perform skills within the psycho-motor domain.
