Brilliant Activities for Gifted and Talented Children covers many types of creative and critical thinking skills that will enable children to develop their cognitive processes. The work that the children produce will be extremely different because the activities allow room for creativity and open-ended answers. Gifted children are not the only children who will benefit from this book! Children will thoroughly enjoy these activities. Some of the activities can be last for days, others such as the brainteasers can be used for a quick warm-up to spark interest and excite the brain. Use these ideas and have the confidence of knowing that the extra you are doing in the classroom really helps the children to think on six levels: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
