Reflection: Student Feedback Artifact Share - Section 3: Closure


This went well, and I was impressed that the kids remembered parts of it later in the year.  I wouldn't even have realized it, but we did a writing activity with a setting of somewhere in Washington, D.C.  Many chose the places I mentioned in the Artifact Share and for those who "went to the Capitol" they talked about when they were on the House Floor, just as I had described it to them during the Artifact Share.

I was disappointed that none of my students went anywhere historic over a break during the school year because I wanted to add their Artifact Share to this lesson.  I have no doubt that it will be fun to experience, no matter when a future student shares their trip.
