Art : Flexible Thinking

Flexible Thinking
Angela Kerns, Child's Way Charter School, Culp Creek, Oregon
Grade Level: 8-11

We have been studying Habits of Mind. This bulletin board was the grand finale of an activity to put Flexible thinking into practice. Students had to unscramble the letters (which were just outlined in black ink) to figure out what the phrase was. Then the students were to decorate "their letter" with flexible thinking. They could do anything with the construction paper that was provided except use a writing utensil of any kind. The students absolutely loved the exercise and truly exercised flexible thinking. The hands on aspect was especially enjoyed and the enthusiasm for putting the bulletin board up was very high.
