Summary of contents
Active Enrichment provides activities and materials that can meet the enrichment needs of the gifted and talented student, and those of a broader able audience. Many of the activities can be used for extension and enrichment with larger groups than is normally associated with gifted and talented children.

The activities in the resource are arranged into four groups:

ten-minute enrichment and early day activities suitable for home, on the way to school or at school – either as physical-intellectual tasks, practical activities or discussion tasks
lesson-length activities, which can be extended from a lesson into a day and from a day into a term and beyond
day-long enrichment and extended projects, which can be the beginning of life-long interests and the starting point for exploration of other enrichment to be explored
after-school and extended-day enrichment activities or discussion starters that are aimed at stimulating thinking on the way home or after school.
