Children's schools should have an "Imagination" period

I feel,When you Imagine things, You create things.All new innovative things starts with an imagination.
Most of the people now are so engrossed in their day to day lives and their perspective have become so narrow, they hardly question things which then stops innovation.
A session/class/period where Children given a random abstract/real world topic/situation, should imagine things in their own way as they see it in their world and explain how they have interpreted it to the class.This would help expand their imaginative skill and hence creativity and would generate more ideas. And when they grow they would cultivate this as a habit and apply their ideas in the real world.

    May 30 2012: I agree that schools should have an imagination period! I am going in to 6th grade and I get to choose my classes, and I would definitely choose "Imagination" for one of them! The class would be about our ideas instead of Isaac Newton's! I would even like to teach the class! I think if I had a whole 55 minutes to imagine and spread my ideas I would even kiss my teacher's shoes! But you don't have to have a teacher... I have so many ideas going on in my head right now! This is a great idea!!!!! I absolutely LOVE it!!! Great idea!
