This is a lesson plan with 4 activities that move from concrete examples of flexible thinking to more abstract examples. Students will engage in flexible thinking through pictures, games, comic strips, and discussion. Includes specific dialogue to have with students:
One way to be a flexible thinker is to be aware and take other people’s perspectives in to consideration. Different people can view the same situation differently. Just because you see it one way does not mean that your best friend, your teacher, or your sister will see it the same way.
