Genius Hour - My PowToon video to introduce the kiddos to Genius Hour

Genius Hour Video- This is an hour of class time per week set aside for kids to work on a project that they are passionate about. Video explains the concept in detail.

Each child gets a 1/4 of a circle and decorates in a way that says something about themself.  Nice integration with fractions also.

Everyone gets a square with a quarter circle, this is the end result- could be a good ice breaker beginning of year activity. Each student decorates the square and includes their name. Nice way to decorate the bulletin boards in the beginning of the year!

Love this art project!
