Thumbprint Self-Portrait

I tried this les­son with my mid­dle school stu­dents and they really had fun with it!

This was more chal­leng­ing than I expected! (Another option for col­lect­ing fin­ger­prints is to rub a soft pen­cil on some paper, rub your fin­ger onto the pen­cil, and then press a piece of clear tape onto your fin­ger. 2. First, cut them out and write stu­dents’ names in pen­cil, then enlarge them one at a time. 3. Don’t worry if some lines start and stop, or run into each other. 4.

Last week I was scouring the internet for some more inquiry ideas for my classroom when I came across Genius Hour.

Passion Projects in the Classroom

One word ... hooked. And inspired. And motivated. (I was never good at limiting my words). ;) Sufficed to say, I KNEW it was going to happen in my classroom. In a nutshell, Genius Hour is something that happens in your classroom for one hour a week. So, I got started immediately. Our Genius Hour will take place every Friday in our classroom, during our Language Arts block.

I then showed them the "Pep Talk" video by Kid President. I asked them how they thought this video ties into their passions and we had a short discussion about it. I then handed out a second sticky note and asked them to "refine" their passion a bit. I handed out a duotang and notebook to each student to keep track of their sheets and notes during the project (bright yellow, of course). After a few moments of brainstorming, I allowed them some group time to discuss the ideas they were thinking about. Reggio Inspired Learning. My most popular Pinterest board is my Reggio Provocations board.
