Students will learn the difference between a group and a team as they explore the concept of interdependence. The literature selection is particularly appropriate and a classic kid favorite!
Once your students have a good grasp on the concept, they will apply those skills as they collaborate to create a dual-supported structure that will suspend a tasty treat high above the work surface.
There are opportunities for a thorough discussion and debrief to ensure that your kiddos have completely understood and internalized what interdependence means and how they can work more easily in teams for the rest of their lives.
All Mindwinders include:
**An engaging essay to kick off the theme
**A literature suggestion to enhance the theme
**A fun hands-on activity to boost collaborative and problem-solving skills
**A fun "think on your feet" ReMindwinder game
**A complete debrief
The appendix that follows the Mindwinder is your guide to facilitation and is recommended reading!
