This fully revised series of photocopiable activity books uses a structured, three-tiered approach to cater for gifted and/or talented students working within the regular classroom. There are titles available for: Junior Primary, Middle Primary and Upper Primary. Activities have been presented in a range of interesting and motivating theme books linked to junior primary outcomes. The Pacemaker Series can be used for advanced students working independently or as an adjunct for topics studied by the class throughout the year.
Pacemaker: Storybook Stars can be used in conjunction with any fictional text that the student is reading. Students develop language, design and problem solving skills by exploring fictional characters in a variety of new and unusual scenarios. These tasks will help to enrich students’ appreciation of characterisation whilst eliciting creativity and risk-taking in an open-ended context.
