Genius Hour is a great motivator to share learning. This learning comes from an interest that is motivated by trying to dig deeper, change thinking or share a knowledge that our students have.

  • There are two files in the zipped folder. One is a Teacher Pack and the other is a PowerPoint to share with students.
  • This pack suits all Inquiries as each one requires a big question to explore and your students may need help in framing the question. The steps apply equally to science, math, Humanities (for eg SOSE, HASS, history, geography).
