How Thunks Helped Us Survive Lockdown

July 15, 2020

In this blog post, Independent Thinking Associate and Year Three teacher, Mark Creasy shares the many, many ways he uses Thunks and how they have been a godsend to keep his class thinking through lockdown.

Thunk: A beguiling question about everyday things that stops you in your tracks and helps you start to look at the world in a whole new light.

“I’ve been using Thunks by Ian Gilbert as part of my teaching practice ever since I first came across them, following an Independent Thinking conference. To me, they are an invaluable tool in investigating not so much what children think, but – much more importantly – how they think.”

Read the blog post in full here.

Get A Tin Of Thunks (50 probing provocations on a specially designed set of cards for use in a range of fun and innovative ways, both inside and outside the classroom) here.
