Today’s students are the problem-solvers of the future. If they are taught factual knowledge only, they tend to respond with conventionally correct answers rather than exploring creative solutions. All students can learn to think critically and creatively.

Students need to be able to judge, analyze and think critically in order to participate fully in a democratic and technological society. This can be achieved if the teacher recognizes the value of thinking skills and provides opportunities for the thinking processes to be modeled and developed.

This ‘Think Outside of the Box’ series provides teachers with straightforward ideas and activities to help students develop these skills.

In this pack you will find 70 pages of shapes.

Students can: (turn the page in any direction)
• have free choice to make any picture from the given shape
• be given directions to change the shape into something specific, for example
– a car, a house, an imaginary friend, a dog etc.

When to use:
• independently during morning work
• small group collaboration during circle time
• in challenge areas – laminate and provide a dry erase marker

    Just what I was looking for - it's so difficult to find resources to help us teach these skills! This is an excellent resource: crystal clear explanations and definitely, well worth the money!
