Genius Hour/ Passion Projects
Miss Brink's 5th Grade Genius Hour Blog
For Genius Hour, you are expected to reflect at least one time each week. Reflections should include, where you are in the process, possible changes you needed to make, things that are going well, things that are not going as planned.

I am in the brainstorming stage of Genius Hour. I am a little stumped at what my topic should be. I am researching different articles online from sources like Newsela, Dogonews, and tweentribune. I read an interesting article about time travel that sparked some questions. My goal for the next few weeks is to question the world and hopefully narrow all my questions down to one driving question to begin my research. Some questions I have been wondering are: How would time travel change the future? What information does the government keep from it's citizens? How does immigration affect our school systems? How do unmotivated readers become motivated? As you can see, my questions are all over the place. Stay tunes to see what I pick!"
