After teaching a full school year of ReadyGEN, I decided my gifted learners needed more. I wanted them to really problem solve and spend time on an open ended project.
I designed a total of 8 activities. There are one or two activities for each of the following modules: 2.A, 2.B, 3.A, 3.B and 4.A. Activities align with the following topics: Tall Tales, Native Americans, Natural Disasters, and the book Lunch Money. They can be used as replacement activities or during reading groups.
The bundle includes:
-student handouts for each activity
-detailed rationales for activities
-Bloom's Thinking Level
-Differentiation Strategies used
-Depth & complexity
Activities can take anywhere from two-three 20-30 minute sessions, up to six-eight 20-30 minute sessions. Therefore, these activities could last the full module for each topic.
