Students worked in pairs to brainstorm what they want in a playground. They communicated their preferences as they worked collaboratively to use “loose parts”, materials they had been using since September, to build their ideal playground. When they finished, they shared their builds in a walk around.

Teacher Reflection

There was no arguing. Students demonstrated confidence in resolving any minor conflicts about materials.

I contribute during group activities, cooperate with others, and listen respectfully to their ideas. I can work with others for a specific purpose.
