Imagination

Why do kids have a huge imagination

"Imagination was thought of as a way for children to escape from reality. It was believed they would push fantasy aside and deal with the real world"

Children use their imagination to explore the world around them and help them to determine what is and can be reality. Also, it is used to develop future skills and behaviors to lead to a successful life.

It is used to explore their life around them and serves many useful tasks such as learning social and emotional roles

When a child is a part of pretend play, they are experimenting with the social and emotional roles of life. They are learning the proper social skills and how to behave with others.

The imagination also helps to build thinking skills.

Pretend play provides a child with problems to solve. A child calls upon thinking skills that create the foundation for future thinking skills and problem solving.

Imagination in kids is a very important tool that allows children to develop into mature adults.

Should kids our age be able to think imaginatively as well? What is preventing us from being able to do so?

Does imagination just naturally go away as we get older? Or is it really technology?

I didn't know that there was such a large difference between Kindergarten and preschool.

I think it's interesting too that imagination fades over time, since imagination is a main contributor to maturing into adulthood.

Does the demand to conform to AP curriculum and preparing for AP tests inhibit creative exploration?

Similar to Darren's comment, I find it interesting and somewhat sad that the use of imagination fades as children grow older. Maybe more abstract thoughts could still be beneficial to older students?

In response to Mr. Kro's comment, I think school in general can inhibit creative exploration, not just AP classes.
