Note: Some of my products have some “out there” ideas. Make sure to look at the preview before purchasing. Everyone's classroom is unique and while these lessons work within my classroom, that may not be the case in another’s room.
Getting children to think “outside the box” and on the higher end of the intelligence spectrum can be a challenge. A study conducted in 1980, by Dr. Joanne Hendrick, discovered that giving children the opportunity to foster creative traits enhances their ability to become independent thinkers.
A surefire way to unlock this level of thinking is the mini-lesson, “A Ride on the Wild Side.” There really are no right or wrong answers for the discussion prompts. It’s all about the child making distinct observations and inferences for themselves; and then having the ability to back them up.
Here on Wake Up Sunshine, these few, simple mini-activities will encourage any child to think on a higher level.
