Over the last ten weeks we have been working on our Genius Hour projects.
The rules of Genius Hour are simple:
1. Learn at least one new skill
2. Create something to share and present at our exhibition
We started our projects with a plan. We had to sketch a design or write about what we were planning on making. This involved research about the best materials and procedure we would need to follow. When our plan was approved we began the construction phase of Genius Hour. This phase was different for everyone as we had a large variety of projects.
The video below shows parts of our Genius Hour journey.
In addition to learning new skills from creating our actual project, we all learnt about time management, persistence, organisation and lateral thinking. Even things that we thought were going to be easy, ended up being harder than we thought.
Today we celebrated our learning and achievements with family and friends at our Genius Hour Exhibition.
Our visiting Global Pal, Jolly George, was a special guest.
