Teaching Teamwork: Cup Stacking
East Broadway Cup Stacking Video
Teaching Teamwork: Cup Stacking Challenge - The students in Mrs. Goldberg and Mrs. Gerken's 4th grade class at East Broadway worked in small groups to build cup towers. Students were given only a rubber band with yarn strings. Groups were not allowed to touch the cups with their hands and needed to work together to maneuver and stack the cups. Next, they were challenged to try in silence - The students learned how to rely on their teammates and how important each team member's contributions/ideas were. The students had tons of fun while completing this cooperative learning activity!
