Our Second Genius Hour

The lucky kids who didn’t get interrogated had their turn on Monday.  Mrs. Kirr tied us to our chairs and forced us to watch a video about how fiction inspires people.  In 2/3 Billy presented his book about gravity and zip lining. He created a zip line in class, shown here. The last thing we did was have our bottoms glued to the cold metal chairs and we read.  ~Fondly submitted by Shane & Nicholas

  1. These students are hilarious!! Great word choice - interrogation, tied, forced, glued...not just metal chairs but cold metal chairs. What voices they have! Truly geniuses!
