Creative thinking is important!
Creative thinking involves the use of the imagination, communication skills, problem- solving, mathematics, scientific thinking, and interpreting information. Open-ended scenarios are a great way to get children's creative juices flowing. Choices, comparisons, entertaining new ideas, and formulating personal responses to these problems are all-important ingredients in creative thinking.
