Differentiated Projects for Gifted
Students was written to
help teachers in third, fourth and fifth grades differentiate instruction for
advanced and gifted learners. The activities are hands-on, discovery-based,
research-oriented and cross-curricular.
Activities in Differentiated Projects for Gifted Students
are grouped into chapters according to social studies and science standards.
These activities can be assigned as independent study projects or can be
completed by groups of students.
The activities in this book were
written to support and extend instruction in upper elementary classrooms. When
teachers are implementing units in social studies or science, they can choose
extension activities to help students delve more deeply into subject matter.
teacher may choose to use the activities in this book with all students. Some
students may need more support with the research portions of these activities.
In order to provide this extra support, we suggest bookmarking suitable
websites in advance and enlisting the help of the library media specialist to
gather print and electronic materials that students can use in the classroom.
