Each of these 150 “Thinkable” cards has a different creative and/or critical thinking activity. They will help your students to grow their lateral and higher level thinking skills and are great for fast finishers as well as GAT students.
Thinkables can be used in a variety of ways in your classroom. One possibility is to create a center with the Thinkable cards and materials for completing the activities. Students can use the included Recording Chart to keep track of which cards they have completed. Simply circle, stamp, or use a sticker to cover the number of the card that has been completed. Students do not need to complete the cards in order and can work throughout the year whenever they have extra time.
Another option is to create a Thinkables journal for students to use for their work. Display one card on the document camera for all students to complete. You may also want to allow time for students to share their answers. Journals could also be used independently.
In addition, most of these cards could also be used without the writing component simply by having students discuss possible answers.
Also available in a money-saving Writing Prompts Task Card Bundle
