The original concept is for simple thought provoking ideas that could be put on a table as a box of speaking cards for pairs or small groups of children to discuss on a short daily basis, but this resource has lots more potential.
There is the obvious development of imagination, thinking skills, questioning techniques. Many of the cards could also be used as writing starters.
With younger pupils in particular you may want to use these as a mini lessonn activity (many are suitable). In fact this would probably be best way in for any class to train them to think differently and to get the most out of these short time slots and the resource.
There are more than 100 different thinking cards plus some that I left blank for you to create your own prompts.
They could be also useful for those bright students and early finishers to keep on working with a more challenging question.
Some cards have tips in small print.
I hope you find this resource useful and appealing.
