This contains a teacher overview as well as a video for students to work through independently. Learn more about student access here.


Origins gives you a way to prompt students to consider the beginning of an idea, but it also combines beautifully with the depth and complexity prompts to push them even further.

What teachers are saying

"The ideas presented are clear and straight-forward and my students have responded positively to every lesson idea I’ve used from Mr. Byrd and his colleagues. It’s my favorite go-to resource for gifted students." ~ Melissa in North Carolina

"I absolutely LOVE all of the ideas on your site. Right now I am using Byrdseed TV to differentiate activities for my clustered students to work on when the rest of the class is doing something they’ve already mastered." ~ Wendy in Washington

"I love your site! I find it incredibly helpful when planning my lessons for my high kids. Such innovative ideas and easy to implement. I’ve used a handful of your lessons to date. During each of those lessons, my students were engaged and excited about the topic." ~ Angela in Colorado
