Children's schools should have an "Imagination" period
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!
