Higher Order Thinking

Does anyone know of any good sites or resources to get higher order thinking skills or questions for K's? We have to include a lot of "HOTS" in our lesson plans and I'm having a hard time finding a site to give me ideas. I feel like I need some examples of what higher order questioning looks like in kindergarten to make sure I'm on the right track

We discussed this in a recent staff meeting. We had to take Bloom's Taxonomy along with the reading tests that came with our reading series and evaluate it. The tests do a poor job of addressing higher order thinking skills. This site gives sample questions that may get you on the right track:

Here are four units of work for K-1 incorporating Bloom's Taxonomy and Gardner's Multiple Intelligences that may give you some ideas for practical application:
Fairy Tales
The Wizard of Oz
The Zoo
Celebrations
