## Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Line Plots - Section 3: Closure

As I reflect on this lesson, I am very pleased with how the students participated in this lesson.  Because I gave the students the opportunity to move around and take charge of their own learning, the lesson was a success.  The students were motivated because they were given the freedom of choice in determing the topic of their survey, they were given the freedom to move about as they pleased, and they were allowed to question their classmates.  All of these freedoms were key to motivating the students in wanting to reach the goal of collecting data and creating a line plot.
