CRQ No. 1

the kids have a writing assessment next week, and we finished up our first projects last week. So when kids started to finish early, i had them do one of our CRQs. this one was about Frida Khalo.
students were shown Diego and I and had a brief summary of her life. they had to interpret the symbols in the artwork and think about what they could mean pertaining to Frida's life.
some of these are excellent! but I made sure that they knew there are no wrong answers as long as you can defend it. and when they saw that the ones who tried got to go to the  treasure box, their motivation and enthusiasm were definitely increased.
