This unit was created for gifted/talented pull out instruction for fourth grade but it also appropriate for gifted/talented pull out instruction for fifth grade.
The unit usually take 8-12 weeks in a pull out setting, adding in teacher supplemental activities with this document. The purpose of the unit is for young students to learn the basics of the anatomy of the brain, what is intelligence, what does intelligence look like, and the difference between the brain/mind.
I've enclosed a list of suggested sources, ideas for exit or do now activities, one independent research project with templates, one small group project with guidelines and a rubric, one long term homework assignment, several in-class worksheets, a test, and a culminating project. The unit supplies I've created are all literacy-based with suggestions on hands-on science activities to do. Everything in this download can easily be printed and disseminated to the students.
Opportunities for group work are enclosed.
Please leave feedback, thanks!
