The document provides lesson plans for strengthening the thought processes, including problem solving and creative abilities, of first and second grade mentally gifted children. The lessons are organized within the five operations of the mind as defined by J. Guilford's Structure of Intellect (SOI): cognition (10 lessons), memory (3 lessons), evaluation (3 lessons), convergent production (7 lessons), and divergent production (21 lessons). All six products of the SOI model (units, classes, relations, systems, transformations, and implications) are considered; however, emphasis is placed on transformations and implications since these two products are seen to clearly relate to the creative process. Diagrammed for lessons in each of the five operations areas are the curricular objective (such as "given a ditto of numbered dots the child will be able to connect all the numbers in correct order"), input (such as "discussion should take place on reading maps"), learning opportunities, media, output, evaluation, and enrichment. Included in the document are mazes, pictures, puzzles, and other worksheets to be duplicated and used with the lessons. (SBH)
