5 You may want to watch a few more inspirational videos listed in Chapter 2 over the next few days and keep adding to the list before Step 3 (developing the inquiry questions). This will probably depend on how many ideas the students were able to generate. We like to spend a few weeks on Steps 1 and 2 (inspire, wonder), so do not feel like you need to rush to the part where they develop their own questions. We also recommend going outside for a nature walk, if that is an option. Students can record questions and wonders and add them to the Genius Hour Wonder Wall too.
