In the afternoon, we practiced collaborating by building towers using paper bathroom size cups. The great thing about building with the paper cups is that it is fairly quiet. The kids have to concentrate and carefully place the cups. They learn that it's okay if the cups fall because they can rebuild. We talked about being encouraging others by noticing and complimenting as we notice what other groups are doing. For some groups, it took some time to understand they needed to work together and build just one tower, but soon, as they saw what others groups were doing, they worked it out and began building one tower. Check out these builders!
Have a nice evening!
