Creativity often comes from an open-ended prompt, a nudge to take an idea and run with it. Simple, sturdy, colorful cards have a charming illustration on them in 3 color-coded themes. A red outline is your character, a yellow border is your setting and a blue outline is an object. A guide provides several combinations of cards for a variety of tasks from looking for opposites, to creating a story structure. Your students will love the surprise that comes from flipping over cards to go with your shown cards. Comes in a flip-top box for storage. Get more than one for even more creative options! Box is 4.5x5.5x1” ~Sara
