Noticing Things

Will send my 1301 students outside today. I give them 15 minutes to write all the observations they can. Winner gets a prize. Many will write down 75 or more.

It’s an exercise in creativity. Creative people see things others don’t see. Scratch that. Creative people see things others don’t notice.

Noticing things. Guess it’s a lesson in life, too. Because much of what is good, of what can be useful to us and helpful to others is right in front of us. If only we’ll notice.

Maybe this teacher needs to make a list, too.
