The end of the school year is upon us. It’s time to reflect on the growth we’ve made and showcase our learning. We get to pull out our favorite end-of-year projects and activities.
It’s also the perfect time to try something brand new.
If you are looking for:
- ways to keep motivation high as you review for the end of the year assessments
- new final project ideas
- innovative ways to showcase student work
Then you have come to the right place.
In a recent #Ditchbook chat, we asked the community to share their BEST final projects along with creative ways to review for the end of the year assessments. They did not disappoint.
Participants shared ideas like:
- clothespin bumper cars
- choice boards
- the million dollar project
- epic review games
- …and SO many more!
