In cooperative learning, students are organized into small groups to which they share a common goal.
During the course of the activity, children work together for a shared benefit, realizing that all members share that goal and the rewards of achieving it.
Cooperative learning goes hand in hand with social and emotional learning.
For this activity, we created a Where the Wild Things Are collage.
Students painted and added a variety of items to the poster that we later hung up in our classroom!
