Great Resource ... AND great gift ideas!

Can you believe it is already November? With the winter holidays and snowy weather around the corner, Hoagies can be a terrific resource for you and your gifted child. The website offers fun activities for all ages as well as a gift suggestion guide. If you haven't checked out this site recently, give it a look! The gift guide is on the lefthand side and marked "Gifts for the Gifted".
The links page for children and teens has enough activities to engage a student for a multi-day blizzard. Let's hope that's not necessary...

Online Mystery Challenge Game - from MIT & the Smithsonian

The Smithsonian and MIT have paired up to create an eight-week online and offline game that challenges middle school students to solve an environmental disaster mystery by gathering clues at museums near their homes and working together in online forums. The game is called "Vanished" and began last Monday. Thousands of participants have signed up and students do not have to actually visit the museums to be able to play. MIT students moderate the game, and participants work with Smithsonian scientists through video conferences. Check out the link for all the information!
