The start of I-time

Throughout the year the students have been completing design challenges on a weekly basis. We have called this time Genius Hour. This has been an excellent opportunity for students to learn about problem solving and group work.  An example of some of our challenges have been to build a chair out of cardboard that is designed for Ms. Thao or to use a bottle and a plastic bag to build an air cannon. We are now moving into the phase of giving the students more choice in what projects they work on. We will call this time I-time which stands for Inquiry time.  Have a look at the video below to see what the students have been up to in I-time. This video was created by Ola, Beeke, Hien and James.
