Reflection: Student Ownership Rolling Down the River - Part 2 - Section 4: Putting the River Together


The students were motivated to complete their section of the map because they knew that the entire map could not be hung until all the parts were completed. They were excited to see how their section of the map connected with the other team's work. This project supported individual ownership with teams working together on sections, but also provided a chance for teams to work together to complete a one river map together.
