This helpful resource is designed to offer teachers, facilitators, and parents a wide variety of activities designed to cultivate children's problem-solving skills while fostering cooperation between group members. These hands-on projects teach children to experiment with building methods, discover new uses for everyday items, try on new personas, and express themselves as they work toward a solution as a team. Team members are required to think outside the box, communicate clearly, and cooperate with each other in order to complete each task. Activities include planning a five-day trek through the mountains; building a bridge out of marshmallows, straws, and paper; and moving a group of ping-pong balls from one location to another without touching the balls directly. Children will learn not only from each other, but also from observing how other teams navigate the tasks.
