SWBAT choose an artifact to represent their progress in grade 5, then reflect on this artifact.

Big Idea

Students choose a piece of evidence to serve as an artifact to reflect their learning.

End of Year Reflections

45 minutes

To celebrate the learning that has taken place throughout the year, parents and community members are invited to school to view student work.  

Each student chooses an artifact that best reflects their mathematical growth in fifth grade. Once an artifact is chosen, students complete an end of year reflection.  These reflections are attached to each artifact. 

Reflection is an essential component of developing metacognition.  As students reflect on the learning process, they become more aware of themselves as learners and begin to understand their own learning process.
