Product Description
Did you know that creativity is a skill that can be taught and learned, just like reading and math? Yes, for real!! :-) Through exposure, experience, and practice, creative thinking is a skill anyone can cultivate.

Not only is creative thinking FUN, but it is also important! Divergent thinking increases a child’s desire to learn and supports his/her intellectual development. When we encourage creative thinking, we promote engagement, motivation, and love for learning.

Summer Brain Food contains 22 highly engaging printable activities to help your child think critically and creatively in the summer months. Activities are ready to print and go; no teacher/parent prep required! Pages are also in black and white to save your ink.

Purposefully incorporating creative thinking activities into daily or weekly instruction can:
• Increase students’ interest and motivation
• Improve students’ attitudes towards school
• Nurture effective problem solving skills
• Encourage students to examine multiple perspectives and points of view
• Help students understand familiar things in new and deeper ways
• Promote questioning, curiosity, and innovation
• Foster risk-taking and iteration

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Brain Food Activities are perfect for:
• Anchor Activities
• centers and stations
• Bell ringers
• Partner/cooperative group assignments
• Enrichment for fast finishers
• Brain breaks

While I designed this pack to be used with my students(and children!) at the end of the school year, the challenge activities can be used at any time!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This resource includes:
• 22 No-Prep Printable Activities
• Teacher tips for implementation
• An Activity Alignment Guide
• Answer Key
(Please note that the Teacher Tips provided in each packet are the same; ALL of the activities are different.)
