Two new lesson plans have been posted at www.mensaforkids.org/teachers; you can also access them through the Parent/Teacher Resources section of the Mensa for Kids Web site, www.mensaforkids.org. The new lessons include:
-- Kingdom Animalia, for 3rd graders
-- Greek mythology, for 7th graders
Since these plans are designed to be completed with minimal supervision, they serve as independent coursework either in the traditional classroom or outside it. You can view the course materials online and download complete copies to hand to your favorite gifted student(s).
The Mensa Education & Research Foundation is sponsoring this series of lesson plans for grades Kindergarten through 12. Designed to challenge gifted children, lesson topics range from the alphabet to the periodic table of elements, from Fibonacci numbers to the Seven Wonders of the World. Sign up online from the Lesson Plans page to get email alerts when new plans are published.
