Six thematic activity booklets are presented for implementing Project EAGLE, an enrichment program for gifted and talented primary-level children.

"Geoboards 2" focuses on the manipulation and recording of geometric shapes using problem-solving skills to transform and analyze configurations. It asks students to reproduce specific shapes, count sides on complex shapes, compare shapes, and create shapes. "Transportation" discusses, in six learning activities, the way people, animals, or things move from one place to another."Groups 2" presents eight activities dealing with classification of people and objects into groups based on variable attributes. "Dinosaurs 2" offers six activities involved in defining dinosaurs, creating a dinosaur habitat, and creative writing. "Touch" provides learning activities on describing a variety of textured items and using finger tips and other parts of the body to react to and record various sensations. (JDD)
