What is lateral thinking? Let us look at this math question below:
There are 5 cows and chickens on a farm and they have a total of 14 legs. How many of these animals are cows?
Lateral thinking is key here. Having the ability to use creative imagination to look at a problem in a fresh way and come up with a solution to crack it places your child on a track that transcends mere routine regurgitation. Lateral thinking skills will challenge your child to think innovatively, find a creative solution and tackle the challenges of non-routine questions head-on.

What is Experiential Learning? Experiential learning motivates the child to take on a more active role through activities that engage their five senses and prompt their reflection on the process.

The set of visuals above accompanies the title “A heroic act”. Your child is invited to step up, close their eyes, wear the hero medal and hear the background audio clip.

Let us take a look at how Science is taught through experiential learning:
What is so special about the way Scholar’s Inc teaches? Scholar’s Inc. teaches from the heart. We have made it our business to know what the needs of your child are and we have tailored a series of progressive programmes that cater to each stage of your child’s education. Lateral thinking and experiential learning is the base of how we teach English, Mathematics and Science. We couple that with a syllabus that includes general abilities, a range of reasoning questions that teaches your child about the importance of instructions, reliance on contextual clues, and adaptability in all situations to piece together a structured and rational answer.
