Look at How Much I’ve Learned!

The grade two students in Mrs. Barron’s division 14 just completed their study on Canadian animals. They each picked an animal to research and started writing down all the facts they knew about their animal.  After completing the unit, the students jotted down new facts they had learned.  They represented their learning with physical objects and could visually see the progress they had made.  Some students said they preferred demonstrating their learning through this format instead of always doing a traditional written test, and one student beamed and said, “I’m smart.”
