Try having your students do a “gallery walk.” You can have students display their work on their computer monitor and then go around the classroom to look at the work of their peers. If you want students to have the opportunity to explain their work to their peers, have students born in an odd month start by walking around and then swap. This practice can help build community in the classroom. It can also increase students' motivation to get to see the work of their peers.
Example: "In 30 minutes we'll do a gallery walk to share our work!"
