There are many ways you can foster creativity in your students and the Invention Activity is one of them. In the Invention Activity, there is no right or wrong, no impossible. There are no lines to color in. No box to stay in. You get to allow your students to be as innovative as possible while using the supplies you have provided.
- Required materials vary based on what supplies you choose to provide for students (Suggestions include: pipe cleaners, pom-poms, tape, glue, string, popsicle sticks, plastic cups, stickers, markers, ribbon, straws, seashells, construction paper, hole punches, or Play-Doh.)
- YE currency and YE bonds
- The Invention Activity can be used at any time throughout the school year. The more often the better, as it allows for innovation, creativity, and pitching
- The earlier in the year you start doing activities like the Invention Activity the more comfortable your students will become sharing their ideas in front of others.
