Product Description
How can we measure creativity and how can it be taught to and developed in children? Increasingly, our society demands innovation and creativity, but few understand what that really entails. In this lesson, students will explore their creative side by engaging in fruitful discussions, partaking in unique tasks that gauge their creativity, and also learning how the environment they establish for their future kids can spur ingenuity in the next generation.

In this lesson, students will specifically:
1) Respond to a Bell Ringer that ask them to define creativity.
2) Listen to Sir Ken Robinson define what he believes creativity is.
3) Engage in a discussion about creativity, schools, and children.
4) Learn about creativity tests developed by past psychologists through an online audio recording.
5) Experience some of these creativity tests firsthand.
6) Read an article suggesting tips to raise creative children by university psychologists.
7) Conclude with an exit ticket that asks students to synthesize a couple activities they would do with their own children to spur creativity.
