6EK Genius Hour Presentations

Last week the students in 6EK presented their Genius Hour presentations via a scheduled Google Hangout. The reason we had a Google Hangout was to allow our parents who work or are unable to come into our classroom at a scheduled time, to view the students fantastic Genius Hour presentations.
In having a Google Hangout our parents could watch from work or at home. We also invited some of our Blogging Buddies to watch the fantastic work we had done this term.
We would also like to thank St Marks for the fantastic questions they asked us about our presentations.


  • What did you like most about presenting using a Google Hangout?
  • If you could change one thing what would it be?
  • If you watched our Google Hangout LIVE we would love to know how many people were in the room with you watching? Where about in the world were you watching from?


This week in Mathematics we have been looking at Shape. We have been focusing on 3D shapes and how they are used in many different ways. We begun the week looking at the different types of 3D shapes, including nets, faces, vertices and edges associated to each 3D shape. Next we took our learning outside and explored all the 3D shapes that make up our school. From this we then created a Presentation using Google Presentation to show how 3D shapes are all around us.
Take a look below at the fantastic learning that has occurred in our class about Shape.


  • What is one interesting fact you have learnt about 3D shapes?
  • What 3D shape is our school mainly made up of?
  • What do you think of everyone’s presentations? Make sure you leave some feedback for others.
