End of Year Freebie
Personal Journey Reflection
Your students will love this fun, interactive, and reflective End of the Year
activity! It's perfect for the last day of school or during the days leading up to the end of the school year.
Foster students’ self-reflection skills, critical thinking, and development of personal values with this journey reflection activity. In this one (or two) day lesson students will investigate quotations about journeys, reflect on their own journey, and complete a personal journey scrapbook template. In doing so, students will look back at their school year, process their triumphs and stumbles, and develop understanding of the importance of each person’s journey (not just the destination).
Students each receive a quote about journeys and turn their quote into a decorative poster for the classroom. Then, students “tour” the quotes and reflect on the meaning of each. Finally, students select a quote for their personal journey map.
Using guided questions, students reflect on who they were at the beginning of the year, who they are now, and all the successes and struggles that got them to today.
Journey Scrapbook Template
Each student creates scrapbook pages about their school year journey using a fun template.
