|We've named our grade-level TeamFive and we'll use this graphic to lead their TEAM studies and collaboration.|
One study in the book that most caught my attention was a study that demonstrates the wonderful impact collaboration had on the success of all students. That's why it's important to start the school year with an emphasis on TEAM: Together Everyone Achieves More.
A good way to do that is to promoted the Global Cardboard Challenge as an initial team building activity. I've designed a number of activities leading up to the project to promote understanding of TEAM and one's place and responsibility on a team.
In years past students have remarked that this project was one of their favorite events of the year, and I believe that the project created a strong sense of TEAM across the grade-level too. Try it out. Let me know what you think. Year after year, I update and grow this project to best meet student's needs and interests.
