Our Genius Hour projects earlier this year were so educational and enjoyable that we decided we would have Genius Hour Round 2!
You can check out some of the action shots from Genius Hour Round 1 in the slideshow below. We had everything from aprons to animations, birds houses to blogs and sewing to sanding!
After 10 weeks of planning and creating we held a Genius Hour exhibition. Everyone had to create their own display space with their actual project as well as some information about how it was created and the skills learned along the way. We had a lot of family and friends visit to see our creations and we even ended up with a full colour page in the local paper! Throughout the exhibition some students also spoke about their projects and there was also a ‘Question and Answer’ panel with six students to answer any audience questions. You can see some photos of the exhibition in the slideshow below.
On Friday the 5/6 Team began their new Genius Hour projects and the room was buzzing with excitement as students drew plans, chopped wood, stitched fabric and researched information for their brand new blogs.
The rules are the same as last time:
1) Students have to learn something new
2) Students have to have something to present at our Genius Hour Exhibition.
The students created a plan for homework, outlining their project, including information about where they may seek help or information, materials needed and what they will share.
