Hey everyone, I will be teaching fifth grade self contained gifted with about 33 students. I'm looking for a project or activity that we could do the first couple of days. Any suggestions?

Images of Greatness

When I taught fifth and sixth GT I always started the year with Images of Greatness. It's more than a few days.. usually about a month or so... but it's a great way for kids to start thinking about giftedness and others like them.

You can find it here about halfway down the page.

I have a copy that is at LEAST fifteen years old... it was bought by the woman who taught sixth GT before me, and I have held on to it ever since she left it to me... I love it! I've also done it with third GT, but it wasn't as effective. I bought the ALM for younger kids this summer, and there is an abbreviated version there that I'm going to use with K-4 this year.

If you are interested, and can't get a copy.. let me know, and I'll send you the information I have here. My book is packed away at school...
