What Have You Been Doing in GT LEAD?

First Grade: How did your object portrait for, "My Dog is as Smelly as Dirty Socks" turn out? What does it look like? How do you solve a Sudoku with letters instead of numbers? What silly holiday songs did you sing?


Second Grade: What can you not do well YET? What academic goal did you set? How can I help you work toward meeting your goal? How do you solve a Sudoku with letters instead of numbers? What silly holiday songs did you sing?


Third Grade: I heard you're a top executive at a company that produces and sells styrofoam cups. Tell me about the problems your company faces. How did you and your co-worker(s) attempt to solve this problem? Tell me about your cup. In what ways did you SCAMPER the original cup? How do you play "What's in the Box" and/or "Names on the Back"? Let's play! What silly holiday songs did you sing?

Fifth Grade: Tell me about Richard Turere in Kenya. What was his passion and how was he personally connected to this passion? What did his passion lead him to do? Does he have a growth mindset or a fixed mindset? I heard you're a top executive at a company that produces and sells ornaments. Tell me about the problems your company faces. How did you and your co-worker(s) attempt to solve this problem? Tell me about the way in which you tested your solution. What about your solution did/did not solve the problem?
