Mensa for Kids Lesson Plans

Mensa for Kids Lesson Plans are learning units that contain multiple lessons over the same topic that are designed to meet the needs of all children for extension beyond the standard curriculum.

These lessons may be given to students for individual, self-guided work, or they may be taught in a classroom or homeschool setting. These plans are designed to enrich academic learning with extension for gifted children built in. We include a variety of questions and extension opportunities to allow the plans to be customized to work best for the student(s) you are working with.
