## Reflection: Real World Applications Road Trip Task - Section 4: Closure

My students enjoyed this lesson.  It gave them a chance to get away from the math book.  They enjoyed the fact that they had to figure out which numbers needed to be added.  I could have given them the numbers to add, but that would not be challenging.  I have found that most students can add.  They mainly have difficulty with subtraction.

It was important to be to have a lesson that the students can enjoy because I want my students to experience different things in my classroom.  Students get bored easily.  Using a task is a good way to encourage group interaction, hold the students accountable for their own learning, and let them experience a different instructional strategy.
