## Reflection: Tree Mapping in 3D - Section 4: Closure

This activity was fantastic! It was fun, hands on and the kids loved it. I have a very challenging class this year and my most severe behavior problem students were successful with this. It was very rewarding to see how well the kids did with this. If I were to repeat this lesson, I would consider adding a couple more objects to each shape category to make it a bit more challenging.

Success!
