Collaboration

This group of second-graders works collaboratively to create a ramp structure of their own design. They discuss their ideas and collectively make decisions concerning their goal as well as specific design features that affect the ramp system’s function and purpose. At times, they disagree about how to fix certain problems, but they are still able to work together as a team without conflict. Ramps and Pathways activities provide children with numerous opportunities to cooperate, problem solve, consider multiple perspectives, negotiate, and communicate, all valued skills in today’s workforce.
