>What would happen if…an elephant ran the town instead of the mayor?
What if aliens abducted your teacher? (What would school be like then?)
What if you were famous or your parents were famous?
What if your dog could talk?
There is no limit to the ‘what if’ questions you can ask yourself or a friend. If you are playing with a friend, build on each other’s ideas and get completely silly!
Hint: Answering ‘what if’ questions are a good way to start writing short stories and poems.
This activity promotes imaginative play which assists in problem resolution skills.
