Creative Thinking Activities for all Primary Ages
Edward de Bono has long been recognised as a ‘guru’ in the area of lateral thinking. It is his contention that the mental activity of ‘creative thinking’ is not just the product of a high level of intelligence. Indeed, as thinking can be seen as a skill, the end result can be affected considerably by the amount of practice that the ‘thinker’ has been exposed to before undertaking the given task.
The activities in Creative Challenges have been designed to stretch your student’s understanding and thinking skills. This activity book follows that basic principles of de Bono and Dalton in concentrating on eight processes or skills which foster an increased ability to think creatively and divergently. These include:
- Cognitive abilities
- Originality and Elaboration
- Affective abilities
