What is genius hour? Genius hour is one-hour-a-week that I let my Brookridge Day School 3rd graders research whatever topic they choose to research! YES! THEY CHOOSE!
Every week there is an hour dedicated to just that topic. They research and prepare a project. It can be a “how-to” topic, a famous person, a state, a country… the topics are absolutely endless. After 3-4 weeks of research, we share our research and projects with our classmates. It is such a great opportunity for children. My favorite thing about genius hour is the excitement it generates in the classroom about learning.
