Genius Hour Update with Pictures

Genius Hour
We are winding down our projects.  The students have conferred with me and know what direction they need to head to finish up their projects.  They are still fully engaged for each Genius Hour we have in the classroom.  We have ours every other Friday.  Each time I announce today we will have Genius Hour a cheer arises in the classroom. Yes, they love it!

This Key Club member worked with 6 students that wanted to learn more about seals and polar bears.  We had done a unit on the "Arctic" in January and this group was inspired to continue the research.
