Product Description
Genius Hour is a great opportunity to provide students with a set time in a safe classroom environment to pursue their passions or interests. 21st Century Skills are addressed during Genius Hour and these materials help with creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, citizenship, and character.

However, these resource materials could be used at the beginning of the year or after teaching our Genius Hour Starter Lessons. Not implementing Genius Hour? Utilize these 4 lessons for a writer’s notebook prompt. All the forms are completely editable, which allows you the opportunity to modify these documents based on your students' needs.

Genius Hour Resources and Lessons Part 2

Items Included:
• Genius Hour Log (students keep track of their daily accomplishments and goals for the next time)
• Genius Hour Parent Letter

I have implemented Genius Hour in my classroom and have found success when I have started out with whole class activities and then let students branch off once they have found their passion topic.
