Every few months we take part of an afternoon in my classroom and work on a creative thinking project. It is an “outside of the box” create something kind of project. It is not necessarily tied to curriculum, but the ideas of problems solving, working in a group, and critical thinking are weaved throughout curriculum.

I get my ideas from the Kids Who Think Blog – a fantastic resource for creative projects!

We also look forward to sharing our ideas with Mr. Poluck’s Class (@mikepoluk)  in Sault St. Marie.  They often do the same projects as we do!  Collaboration makes the project even better!

Think Project 1 – Build something long and strong with paperclips and spaghetti
Think Project 2 – Build the highest possible tower with straws and tape.
Think Project 3 – Support the egg off the surface of the desk using straws and tape!
