I'm so fortunate to have been asked again to help with 1st grade "genius hour". These ambitious students come to the library twice a week to research and learn more about a topic of their choice. This group wants to know more about ROBOTS. They have read books about robots, researched online about robots and then decided that they really wanted to try to MAKE a robot. Along with the battery powered robots, they have also created a Google presentation about robots and are looking forward to sharing their information with their classes soon. I know we ALL learned a lot! (check back later for a look at their presentation)
