Does anyone have any center ideas for the gifted student? I need ideas that will engage gifted students. Thanks!

Take Apart

I am excited to try a new center idea that I heard at a gifted workshop the other day. It's a "Take Apart" center and is very exploratory. The idea is to put out some kind of machine (ie. old toaster oven, telephone, etc.) with tools and let the kids actually open it up, take it apart, explore the different parts that are inside and how they are connected. Then there is also the option of using the pieces found inside to create something new. Of course I would check inside first just to be sure there is nothing sharp. I think it sounds like a lot of fun and would really attract those children with creative and inventive minds. I'm planning on doing this with first grade, by the way.

Steph, I love your invention center idea, that sounds great! I've done camps where the kids do this and they LOVE it! Your first grade kids are going to have a blast. To kind of go along with that, I created a "Construction Learning Menu" that can be used with any materials such as Legos, K'Nex, blocks, recycled goods, or even pieces from a take apart machine. I've attached the menus - one in language arts and one in math.
