Scamper On: Games for Imagination Development.
This book is a sequel to the book "Scamper" by the same author and builds upon the ideas of imagination development introduced in the first book. SCAMPER is an acronym with each of the seven letters serving as the initial letter or word phrases that form an idea-spurring checklist. The checklist provokes children's minds and spurs the production of ideas with open-ended questions to run the scale of possibilities in search of creative ideas that may lead to the solution of problems. The table of contents includes: (1) "Why Scamper On?"; (2) "What's in the Word Scamper?"; (3) "Scamper Checklist"; (4) "Instruction for Scamper On Game Leaders"; and (5) "Scamper On Games." Contains appendices and 20 references. (EH)
