What educators are saying

I wanted to do a Genious Hour project and wasn't sure how to begin so this resource was very helpful.
Our students in Gifted/Talented started the school year with Genius Hour. This was a great product to facilitate and guide the process for us.


This is a pack of organizing tools to help you get started with genius hour in the primary grade classroom. In the pack, you will find resources that will help you get started and keep your students organized through the process.

If you are not familiar with genius hour, you can see it in action here.

I wanted to be sure I left most of the process of learning about something for my students to figure out, but I also needed to be sure I provided some structure. That is where this pack comes into play.

Here is what is included in this pack:

  • Introduction
  • My Research Plan organizer for the student
  • My Research Plan posters
  • Question starters (coming up with research questions)
  • Research organizers for the students
  • Research Helpers
  • My creation planning sheets
  • Genius Hour planning checklist for students
  • Kid-friendly research websites attached to QR codes
  • Google Slides version on the recording sheets for distance learners
