Critical and Creative Thinking~Looking for ways to encourage your students to “think outside of the box”?
Thinking is a skill…and it can be taught!
Foster creative thinking in your classroom by using this bundle of 96 Creative Thinking Task Cards.
These task cards are great for:
Students Who Need an Extra Challenge

Buddy Chats (Think-Pair-Share)
Brain Boosters (5-minute quick write)
Journaling (run in black/white for students to cut/paste in notebook)
Socratic Seminars (my students call it “talking like adults”)
