Abstract(s)The purpose of this paper is to identify and characterize what creativity is evidenced in early science and mathematics. As a consequence, this qualitative study sought to produce a description and map of lived experience in a primary school classroom, explores how creativity can enhance learning and examines some relationships and synergies between science and mathematics education and creativity. In this paper we discuss the concept of creativity in the context of science and mathematics education. Then we recommend an activity and strategies that encourage creativity, and more specifically imaginative/creative thinking. The episode herein reported was drawn from selected observations and supported by information gathered through several types of data and offers many examples of children’s dynamism and rising abilities to collaborate in deciding what to do in carrying out investigations
