COOPERATIVE LAB GROUPS










PUZZLE LAB
IT IS IMPORTANT FOR STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO WORK IN GROUPS IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH A GOAL. THE STUDENTS HAD TO WORK AS A TEAM IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THE PUZZLE. THEY FIRST HAD TO WORK ON THE PUZZLE WITH NO TALKING AND THEN DO IT WITH TALKING. THEY COMPLETED THE LAB THEY LOOKED AT THE DATA TO COMPARE AT WHAT METHOD WAS THE BEST FOR TEAM WORK. ALL LAB GROUPS DID THE BEST WITH TALKING. SO THE 2010-2011 6TH GRADE CLASS IS OFF TO A GREAT START FOR THE YEAR.
