ST 1.5

ST1.5 Students demonstrate their learning through performance-based assessments and express their conclusions through elaborated explanations of their thinking.

After learning about the three different types of communities: urban, suburban, and rural, the second graders chose which community to create. They worked together with their teammates by making a plan, used found objects in the room to build their community, and then constructed each community to share and compare with other classes. This activity was used as an assessment to gauge what they learned from instruction and individual research.
