I have closed this lesson a variety of ways in the past.  Sometimes,  I simply ask students to do a gallery walk  of all the posters after they are glued and hung on the walls.  Students literally walk about the room in a set pattern and leave post-it note comments on each other's posters.  Sometimes, I have one group present a particularly difficult match under the document camera.  Other times, I have closed without a public presentation of student work but instead took pictures with my ipad and post them to with questions for students to answer as homework that night.
