At the start of a new school year I thought I would set out a challenge for any pupil of any age anywhere. Actually there are two categories for the challenge (1) Individual and (2) Group.
You have one piece of A4 sized plain white paper. You have to do with it what you want.
write on it
Draw on it
There are no rules and no limitations.
Afterwards you will explain what you have done to others. Was it a success? What can you do to improve it? If it failed… what did you learn?
The group challenge is to see what can be achieved if every participant in the group has a piece of A4 paper that they can contribute in some way to the project. There is one rule here that every piece of paper must be used in some way.
This challenge is to encourage thinking, organisation, experimentation, collaboration and most of all creativity. It is not linked to any curriculum but would help any pupil of any age to develop skills that they would find invaluable as they participate in the 21st century world.
Good luck to all who attempt this… please get back to me with any pictures, reports, videos showing the challenge and its results.
