Teamwork

What does teamwork look like? What does teamwork sound like?

Math students already know how to count from 1 to 100. Mrs. Petersen encouraged students to work in groups of four and count from 1-100 like a scavenger hunt. The activity started with only paper and pencil, but then it became easier with color-coded markers and even better with teamwork!

Learning can be loud. Students helped each other with voices and actions. Excitement erupted when patterns were discovered and the count to 100 went faster. Mrs. Petersen expressed multiple times that this was not a race, but teenagers tend to be competitive and enthusiastic. After completing the task of counting from 1 to 100, students discussed the following questions: What does teamwork look like? What does teamwork sound like? And they even considered: What does teamwork feel like?

Mrs. Petersen encourages teamwork with an emphasis on collaboration and cooperation while learning math.
