Math Journal Sundays - Culminating Mind Map

Well, this is it ... our last math journal entry of the year.  I'm a little sad writing those words ...

For our final entry I had the students make culminating mind maps.  They started with the word "math" in the center of the page, then had our 5 math strands branching out from it.  The rest was up to the students - they had to go through their math journals and "map" each journal entry from the year on the correct branch.  I also asked them to use some color and an image to add visual appeal.

I loved that moment when the students looked at their finished work ... I actually overhead a few students remark in awe at how much they've learned this year!!!  Can't beat that!

Drop by my blog to read a little bit more about our interactive math journals, and find out some of my future plans for the journal.

Have a WONDERFUL Sunday!!!
