Last Friday we held a cardboard challenge as a part of our Genius Hour time. We collected all sorts of cardboard boxes – every shape and size you can imagine. Our Genius Hour session tied in with the Global Cardboard Challenge being held in classrooms all around the world.
During the week we watched different YouTube clips, used google images, looked on Pinterest for ideas and had lots of discussions about what we’d like to create during our cardboard challenge.
We had so many different ideas – games, board games, models of cars – both big and small, desk organisers, arcade games, experiments – just to name a few!
We had lots of people working in teams or with a partner to create their model so there was lots of co-operation, collaboration and many negotiations to come to an agreement that everyone liked.
Here’s the photos from Friday’s session.
WOW – we’ve had another amazing Personal Inquiry session today- congratulations to every single member of our class on their creativity and inventiveness!! This week we had even MORE cooking, a dance routine – filmed in front of a live audience, popstick models, games made, 3D popstick constructions, Art works, tie dying t-shirts, models made with a mixture of construction equipment, books and technology used to present people in our class (very clever groupings Maya) …..the list is extensive.
One of the skills that stood out this week was teamwork – everyone got along with each other, supported each other to make successful creations, helped if asked, offered to help others if they thought they needed some support and gave each other lots of positive feedback during the gallery walk – Well done Team!!!!
We’ve got a short clip from the dance routine by Danielle, Sriya and Holly- what do you think of their routine?
Here’s some photos from today’s session:
Here’s Maya’s fantastic book about our class – she’s presented her learning using the Explain Everything app. Great work Maya.
