Think Diving

Think Diving is a metaphor for thinking that emphasis that thinking is an action. It is hard to find any quotes or pictures of young children thinking.  The common picture of a thinker is often an old man with a frown upon his head. The famous statue, “The Thinker”, by Auguste Rodin gives us another picture. Every muscle in the man’s body is engage in the thinking. Just like every muscle in a child’s body is engaged. Playing and doing new things such as riding a tricycle involves thinking. Thinking with her body.
