Use Your Imagination (But Be Careful)

Does your imagination have power? Writer and storyteller Audrey Turner (The Writer’s Garret) tells kids that imagination is definitely key to problem solving and inter-relations. You can use your imagination to tell stories that connect others. But the imagination is powerful, so be careful. Learn from your imagination by splitting into small groups for collaborative storytelling and for making props and costumes out of basic materials.
