Pops of Genius! Bursts of Creativity!

What Is Genius Hour?

imageThe 5B FISH! are diving in to uncharted waters…to become the Innovators of the future!  Celebrate creativity!  Thatʻs what we do in class.  Everyone has moments of genius!  The students will soon be embarking on focusing on those “pops” of genius with “Genius Hour ➗ 2!”  This is a time when students are encouraged to learn about THEIR passion.  Learn about something that they want to learn more about, a problem they want to address or simply gain more manaʻo about their LOVE!

Genius hour requirements:(adopted from GeniusHour.com):

1) Students MUST begin with an Inquiry Question.  If the question can be answered with a quick google search, it is too narrow and need to be adjusted.

2) The project MUST involve research.  Resources used for project must be documented and shared out.

3)  The “Pop of Genius” project MUST be shared/presented.  To the class and the world!
