These activities help students become better creative thinkers, something schools are criticized for not doing. Ideas for activities come from various problem solving curricula and are fun for student and teacher. They are easy to incorporate into your classroom because they are easy to run off. There is NO cut and paste to this.
Examples of creative thinking topics are: opposite thinking, forced associations, pros and cons, consequential thinking, imaginative thinking, descriptive thinking, metaphorical thinking, etc. You can use this for accelerated students, gifted and talented, early finishers, or as a whole class activity. .
They can be used individually, or put together in a student journal. . USE FOR OPEN HOUSE TO SHOW OFF STUDENT CREATIVITY. Place in a student center for early finishers. I use these with my gifted and talented students and have used these for my creative problem solving teams, too. EASY...FUN!!!!
