Passion Time is a super fun activity we have in our class. Passion Time is where we are free to research what ever we are interested in and what we want to learn about. We start with our essential question. We get it approved by Mr. Solarz. He tries to make our question PHAT, Pretty Hard And Tough rather than skinny. This helps us to create a better project and a project that never really has an answer. We try to find a project that is always open to find more information. We also create a video and a blog to share our information and also organize it.
- I liked this learning experience because I enjoy being able to research anything you like.
- This learning experience taught me how to set up a blog post, and use different searches to find out some information for our project.
- Three 21st Century skills it improved are being curious, be self directed learners, and be a risk-taker because you have to do all of these things when doing a passion project.
- Other teachers should do this because it is a lot of fun for the kids to do and it is a hard yet fun thing to do
