Ever been part of a cooperative task? What is a cooperative task?...you may be asking. Well, it is an activity which forces a group of people to work together as a team in order to complete it. Room 12 took part in a cooperative task a couple of weeks ago.
Their mission...should they choose to accept it...was to get the entire class onto 14 chairs lined up side by side, and move the chairs and students from one end of the side walk to the other end. They could not touch the ground with any part of their body.
The first attempt didn't go so well, and upon reflection, they realized that cooperation means working together. This is exactly what they did on their second try! There was communication. There was observation. There was patience. There was encouragement. There was celebration!
