Give your kids the techniques for effective brainstorming and you are planting the seeds that grow great problem solvers.
Effective brainstorming is an essential skill that often goes unpracticed by all of us! It's never too early - or too late - to begin to hone this skill.
And, it's fun! At least I've never participated in a brainstorming session that wasn't!
Introduce your students to these techniques then have them apply the skill as they protect Humpty from his fall.
