I remember paper and pen.
My children attend a school that is based on inquiry. It allows them the ability be creative on all sorts of levels. Each project includes elements of math, art, language, and (if possible) science. While I’m not sure how I would fare if I had to do such projects, it suits my daughter. She pulls out her oil pastels for the serious portrait work, the black markers for the Venn diagram, the elaborate fonts for the book summary itself, and the paint to make her clay model of Lincoln’s hat look authentic.
My daughter seems to enjoy the tactile nature of the projects. Meanwhile, I enjoy the tactile nature of books.
I bet her creativity will be sky-high by the time she’s my age. That will be cool to see.
