This semester, students in Years 3 and 4 have once again been working on their Genius Hour Projects. Genius Hour is part of our Inquiry Based Learning, where students develop a complex “Non-Googleable” question on a topic of their choice, then research and present their findings. The students have been allocated one hour a week to work on these projects.
Today was our Genius Hour Expo! All of the St. Mark’s community was invited to see what students have been investigating for Genius Hour this term. The students shared their learning and carried out their actions of their intended impact.
It seems that all of our visitors have been very impressed at the wide variety of projects this term and the creativity that students have shown through their projects.
Below are some example projects….
Students, what did you enjoy about the Expo and Google Hangout?
Visitors, which projects did you find most interesting and why?
Visitors, do you have any feedback for a group? (Feedback that is kind, specific and useful?)
Which projects do you think will have the biggest impact on the community?
