Topic for 9 weeks of explore time

I will have 25 students in grades 5-8 that I will meet with once a week for a hour and 45 minutes or so. This class is called Explore! We can do anything during those 9 weeks. Resources are very limited but I want to do something meaningful and fun with the kids. I'll have the first 9 weeks of school. Any suggestions?

Do you have access to any way they can research things? You could do a genius hour type thing with them.

Genius hour

Yes we do have access to computers and the library. Genius hour would allow students to drive their own education. I have never done genius hour but it is an option. Thanks for the idea.

First Aid/Child Care

I had a class like this before. I am a licensed EMT so I taught a "What kids should know about First Aid" and also added a babysitting component for safety and basic child care needs. I had boys and girls asking me to teach the class again. I arranged for the ambulance to come to the school twice and we explored the equipment and I taught bleeding control, choking safety, diaper care, proper baby holding, etc.
