These lessons are intended as an introduction to Genius Hour for younger students in the elementary grades. It focuses on students' interests and/or hobbies they wish to explore, developing research questions appropriate for their topic, and an introduction to teaching research using digital databases and other resources.
This resource gives a description of how Genius Hour could be implemented into the lower elementary grade K-2. It gives ISTE standards, mini-lesson for helping students choose a topic and complete their research. It has links for an exit ticket and rubric that can be used for lower elementary students. It also contains a reflection on what I have learned about Genius Hour in the Classroom.Resource Photo: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/
