Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model, used by 4-H, allows learners to construct their knowledge by reflecting on activities and then determining how to apply them in their lives. With this being said, reflection isn’t just important, it’s critical. An activity without reflection is just that- a fun activity. We owe our learners more.
Reflection is important, but it’s also hard. Fortunately there are a couple of great resources with ready-to-use reflection activities which can be used in your program right away.
