Learning bites included in this pack:
Your students will first engage in divergent thinking, brainstorming as many possible “what if” statements as possible, before practising their perspective taking and lateral thinking as they consider how they could turn their wild ideas into practical possibilities!
Overcome creativity blockers in your classroom brainstorms with this activity that promotes idea building. By simply swapping out the common response of ‘but’ to an ‘and’, students will experience the positive upward spiral of creative burstiness (yes, that’s a real thing!) that comes from sharing ideas without judgement.
Creativity can stem from building solutions from both problems (‘what’s wrong’ with the world) and what’s already good and possible (‘what’s right with the world).
From rubbish in the streets to swimming with sharks in a clean and restored ocean, students will practise giving themselves permission to explore their ideas out loud, as they brainstorm the simple and big things that are shaping their vision for a better future.
Healthy identity development involves knowing who you are and what you stand for. In this activity, the sky’s the limit when it comes to uncovering what change your students want to collectively create.
Confidence builds creativity. In this bonus activity, find prompts to encourage helpful thinking styles that will foster and support young minds and hearts.
