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.

This product is an extension to our first unit titled, Genius Hour and can be found here:

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.
