Genius Hour project

At Hugoton Middle School, students have the opportunity to explore, research, investigate and present a project surrounding a topic they find interesting during Genius Hour.  Channing D. is passionate about showing and breeding goats.  For her Genius Hour project, she used her extensive background in 4H and personal knowledge, to share with students what it takes to prepare a goat to show.  On December 16th, her mother brought one of her goats to school so fellow Genius Hour students could get an up close look at a show goat.   Allowing students to participate in things they are passionate about helps promote authentic learning.
