Genius Hour – Step 2

This afternoon we continued our Genius Hour, where students explored a topic of interest.  Today, students recorded what they knew about their topic and what they want to find out.  Students will use these 10 questions to help guide their research!  Stay tuned as we will be having a showcase for us to share our learning!

Week 3 Investigations

What a great start to the morning!

We had a range of activities which included mini table tennis,  rubric cubes, canvas art, clay making, mini car models, mouse trap, giant jenga, origami, lego and wool!  Students used the Clara learning powers as a reflection tool, thinking carefully about where and how they used them.

 

 

          

Levers Contenst

Before the end of the day, we had a contest for who could figure out the best way to put the fulcrum (eraser) and ruler, to make another eraser get the furthest. We also tried to figure out how a wheelbarrow and a ruler and fulcrum, can signal the same thing for different weights.
