I will teach 3rd through 6th TAG next year. I would like to find opportunities for my students to participate in various types of contests as well as to participate in history and science fairs in my area. Any ideas of how to get started compiling sources?
Thanks

How about:
Continental Math League
Odyssey of the Mind
Battle of the Books
Lego Robotics
Spelling and Geography Bees
Poetry and Oratory contests
Rube Goldberg Competitions
Chess Tournaments
Stockmarket Simulations

Academic UIL competition

Since you are in Texas, you can also participate in Academic UIL competition, if you can find one in your area. Our district just does our own. We have five elementary schools, so they just compete against each other. Granted it's not just for gifted kids, but the majority of our students who choose to participate are GT.

Just google A+ Elementary UIL, and it will take you to the site.

Thanks for the suggestion. Our school does participate in UIl competitions, but I think I could "pump up" the GT participation.

Yesteach, do you offer the UIL practice as an extracurricular (after-school) club? Which A + contests do you offer, if you don't mind sharing!
