Questions to develop independent & creative thinking

Questions to develop independent & creative thinking

A great resource for educators and parents. Thinking about questions is a great way to develop thinking skills. Some questions may be answered in seconds and others may start debates which last for days. Some of these questions make us think about peoples place in the world (72 - If humans eat animals, why don’t we allow animals to eat humans?), others question what we know (125 - Are clouds alive?), which others are just downright pointless (17 - If you had to have either a moustache or a beard, which would you choose?). Each question however will exercise brains. The most important thing to remember is to support the reasons for your answer by explaining your arguments It is important to know that there are no right answer to any of these questions. Also you are also invited to go off at tangents and interpret each question as you wish. An interesting approach could be to think out what would be the positive aspects of your argument, the negative aspects of the argument and would be other interesting points to consider. For example: (Q91) How would life be different if money grew on trees? Positive: - Everyone would have access to money. - No one would be poor. - You could plant more trees. Negative: - Would money be worth less is there was more of it? - If money grew outdoors, would people be more likely to steel it from your tree? Interesting: - Who would own the trees? - Would different trees grow different values of money? (Q128) What would happen if all cars were the same color? Positive: - Choosing a car would be easier. - With fewer options to manufacture, cars would be easier to manufacture and cheaper. - Repairing damage would be easier. Negative: - Emergency services vehicles may not be obvious. - It would be difficult to find your car in a car park. - It would be boring. - It would be difficult for police to track criminals. Interesting: - People could customise their cars with interesting patterns to make them stand out. - Would cars be customized in different ways?
