The time has arrived! We started looking at how we can tie in science with genius hour at the end of February. We then chose a science tek from 7th grade and then a tool that we really wanted to use to make an awesome project. There were some that wanted to do the typical model. I had steer them into thinking "outside of the box" for projects. There are some really great ideas being worked through. Lots of questions, "how do I do this?" Lots of research to answer those. Some ideas that are being used so far: Newscasts, "celebrity" interviews, talk show, news paper, stop motion video (green screen), persuasive essays, skit, demonstrations of science concepts, poetry, short stories, childrens book, board games.
This is going to be the best ever Student Showcase. I can't wait to see the creations from the kids!!!
