KINDERGARTEN-2nd Grade Working Definition of Creativity: "Creativity is making things that are important to me "SPECIAL." View and discuss the creativity or "specialness" of the following images. Why? are the things in the slide show "special"... What makes them different from what you usually see? There will and SHOULD BE some discussion on some of the choices. BE SURE AND HAVE CHILDREN BEGIN THEIR COMMENTS WITH, "I THINK THIS IS SPECIAL BECAUSE..." After each category pairing have the children respond in unison to the following question, "Special is another word for...?" Kids reply, "Creative!" The first image is typically the creative image, but children may have other ideas. For instance, are theater musicals with live music and actors more creative than movies? Are Pixar movies more creative than "Tom and Jerry?" The point is NOT to have kids choose what adults typically think, but to share their view at this point in their lives.
