Abstract(s)The importance of creativity in education is recognized and is mentioned in Portuguese educational policy documents. The need and importance of science education to foster students' creativity was the main driving point of this study. This qualitative study aims to reveal the potential for creativity and the role of Inquiry Based Science Education in preschool and early primary education. The fieldwork was documented by the use of sequential digital images capturing detailed interactions; field notes supplemented by audio recording later transcribed; and an overall timeline. This communication presents a set of data analysis in relation to one case -application of one hands-on IBSE activity in one classroom. The case study herein reported contains different episodes, documenting examples of mathematics learning through the lens of creativity.
