By Anthony D. Fredericks. To fulfill the need of gifted students for exciting, energizing, focused challenges, these two books of activity ideas offer numerous single-period and multi-week activities designed to stimulate creativity and enhance higher-level thinking. The grades K–2 book includes word puzzles, analogies, short-term research activities, Readers Theatre scripts, six guided book discussions, and a booklist for gifted readers. The grades 3–6 volume focuses on developing six thinking skills (literal comprehension, reorganization, interpretation, evaluation, appreciation, and application) through engagement with puzzles and mental challenges, word wizards, analogies, one- to two-week investigative activities, long-term project ideas, and tools for critical analysis of literary characters, settings, and events. The briefer activities are often based on reproducible handouts. Answer keys. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Good Year Books. ©2007. GDY425.
