Many of our fourth grade thinkers are developing some very interesting ideas for their Genius Hour projects. They are noticing problems that they would like to address as well as the opportunity to use an area of interest to help someone else or to work toward solving a problem.
While trying to give them time to think and decide I have also been posing a lot of questions and possibilities for them to consider. I hope you too have been talking with your student about their ideas for this time we devote to Genius Hour each and every Wednesday afternoon.
As we begin this journey each of the students will have to do a lot of thinking about an idea or topic that they truly have a passion for, or deep curiosity about. We will be using the following questions in class to further our thinking. You may find them helpful at home as well.
What do I love?
What do I wish I could do?
What do I wish I could know?
What do I wish I could change in the world?
What breaks my heart?
This page will continue to include more information as we delve deeper into the concept of Genius Hour.
