This can require some risk-taking:
Thinking outside the box and expanding your horizons.
Looking for many possible answers.

Not judging ideas early in the process - treat all ideas as if they may contain the seeds of something potentially useful.

Making mistakes.
Learning from what has not worked as well as what did.

The Roots


This game instills thought-provoking exercises that makes students
find the root of the problem to causes.


Divide the class into small groups (4-6 students).
First have the groups compile lists of problems the face in school.
Students should find :Where does the problem happen?
When does it happen? How does it happen? To whom does it happen
Students should work as a group in finding solutions to the problem they have encountered

A state of mind:
Creative thinking skills are much about your attitude and self-confidence.
As you are not looking for 'one' answer, you come up with lots of suggestions that are not 'right'.
It is'risky' as the prospect of making a mistake or not coming up with an answer is more likely.

Creativity and emotions:
It is important to be able to cope with risk, confusion, disorder and feeling.

Creative thinking techniques and keep an ideas book :
Some techniques you can begin with are:
Brainstorm ideas on one topic.
Combine some of the features of two different objects or ideas to see if you can create more.
Be open to ideas - look for ways of making things work and pushing the idea to its limits.
Ask questions such as 'what if….?' Or 'supposing….?'.
Keep a small note book - you can jot down your inspiration at all time.
