*** Since we missed Wed-Fri last week, Days 1-3 will be from the previous week.
DAY 4: NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC'S "BEST PHOTOS" OF 2015 Let's take a look. As you look at each image, ask yourself "WHY" you think the photo was chosen. What is it about the image that suggests the photographer used his/her creativity in planning and shooting the photograph. What challenges did the photographer face to get the photo? A photo captures a split second moment in time --much like the speed of a bolt of lightening. Photographers strive to capture the perfect moment. How difficult do you think that might be? Which image would you choose to create a story? Why?
CREATIVE THINKING SKILL: SEE There is beauty everywhere in our world --from the smallest mouse to a powerful waterfall. See the beauty where you live.
DAY 5: BRAINS-ON PODCAST ( http://www.brainson.org ) Have you ever listened to a podcast? A podcast is like a talk radio show. Brains On! is a podcast featuring science and kids produced by MPR News and Southern California Public Radio. They ask questions and go wherever the answers take them. Sometimes that means talking to a food scientist or a snake handler, other times that means putting on a play about sound waves or writing songs about sleep. A different kid co-hosts each episode. It’s a science lesson for your ears – so join us and turn your brains on! The Brains-On website lists many of their podcasts. Check out a few!
CREATIVE THINKING SKILL: LISTEN Creative people use ALL their senses to learn. Hearing is not the same thing as "listening." LISTEN and learn.
