Genius Hour

Before beginning Genius Hour,   I wanted to touch base with the kids on the game Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock.  

We looked at all of the possible combinations:

We found that there were 10 wins, 10 losses, and 5 ties, we discussed whether or not this was a fair game.  Most agreed that it was a fair game since you have the same number of losses and wins.  They felt that, since a tie doesn't benefit either player, it did not matter that there were fewer chances to get a tie.

We spent the entire class researching topics and designing products!  We also completed a Weekly Reflection to guide our hour next week.
