Gifted and Talented/More-able Task Cards - Adaptable across subject/topic

(0)
Based on the TES CPD document, 'Getting the Best out of Gifted Learners'. A set of cards which can be laminated and placed in a cardboard wallet pinned up at the front of the class. Students can either select one at random to create an alternative activity to the one that the rest of the class are completing, or they can use them as extension tasks, depending on how much time there is. I have included the label for the folder and a set of example tasks that we used for an RS lesson but we have used for History, Citizenship and PSHE lessons. They can be easily adapted to suit your subject/the topic being covered. If we don't have time to let students choose their activity, we will usually pick just one 'Bright Sparks' activity that we set as an alternative task.
