After our conversation about the box and reading the book, we had a discussion about what we could create out of our box. We even took a vote about what we should make. The girls decided together to make a flower in a flower pot. What a great idea!
THINKING, CREATING, and COLLABORATING!
This activity gives the girls an opportunity to stretch their creative muscles. They use their critical thinking skills to observe and ask questions. Participating in conversations and cooperating in a group project is an important social and developmental skill. As our girls continue to mature and develop, collaborating and thinking critically are essential skills for 21st century learning. What a fun way to establish these things!
