Cooperative building activities provide one of the most valuable learning experiences available for young children.
Play such as this stimulates learning in all domains of development, including intellectual, physical, and social-emotional and language.
In fact, current research shows that this type of instruction is fundamental for later cognitive success in mathematical and critical reasoning skills.
For this activity, we constructed totem poles out of boxes.
Students worked together in small groups, constructing elaborate totem poles that they enjoyed knocking down!
