Sorry, no I don't have a rubric, as this was just designed as a small exercise to fill in several lessons at the end of the semester!

Sometimes they're the best activities that students remember the most.​

Sorry, no, I don't have a rubric, as this was just intended as a formative filler for some lessons at the end of the semester - a bit of a reward for the students for all their hard work! They loved it.
