#Genius Hour Presentations: Day 1

As a result of Friday’s surprise guest, the originally-scheduled grammar quiz was postponed until today.

Once the quiz was over, the students couldn’t wait to show what they had learned over the course of this two-and-a-half-month educational experiment.  Some of the most notable presentations included:

  • B.D.’s Presentation on Making a Birdhouse
  • E.R.’s Lesson on Rubber Bands versus a Watermelon
  • M.M.’s Analysis of Incidence of Terrorism in the 1990s
  • B.H.’s Information on Cryptozoology
  • Z.G.’s Presentation on Self-Driving Cars

I am so amazed by the depth and quality of the presentations shown today and cannot wait to see what more we learn about as this week progresses!
