What educators are saying

This is great for the kids to organize and keep track of their progress with their Genius Hour projects!
My students love the Genius Hour activities. We have just started, and they can't wait to discover more.


This Genius Hour notebook project-based learning pack will help you and your students begin passion projects with ease! This set will help your students develop a growth mindset as they go through a series of self-awareness activities to create a project that interests them all while learning important skills as they go along. Step-by-step students are taken through the process as they plan and prepare their passion projects or project-based learning project.

This is a great end-of-the-year way for students to teach the teacher about things they are passionate about!

This resource includes a digital learning set compatible with Google™ and OneDrive**/Powerpoint. The digital-only version is available here. Check out the preview there to see what is in the digital version.

This notebook is designed as an ongoing notebook for students to discover themselves and what interests them. They can explore things they wonder about and want to know more about, think about, and create inquiry questions that they can use to guide their thinking. Opportunities to help them engage in discussion and cooperative learning where each student has the opportunity to learn from others. There is a self-reflection component included as well.

The beauty of this notebook is that everything is all there, neat and tidy in one spot AND it is ongoing. Students use the questions, discussions, and self-reflection pages over and over as needed throughout the process making this a great money-saving and time-saving resource. Each set included is 40 pages.

You can use this notebook for:

  • a genius hour allotted time
  • fast finishers
  • extensions for students needing a challenge
  • part of an at-home project

The ideal audience for this Genius Hour Notebook is 2nd to 4th grade with the digital version up to 7th grade. Students requiring extra learning support will also benefit from Genius Hour as it is dependent on each individual's interests and can be differentiated to suit their needs. Genius Hour can get noisy and messy if it is not organized. This resource will help you to do that in your classroom.

This resource is for one classroom only. Please buy additional licenses if more than one teacher would like to use this with their class. This resource can be shared with your students on a secured site but it is against copyright to post this on the internet, blog, or any school website.
