Cooperative Creative Collaboration!

In week 3 Kinder Red joined their BeePals in 3/4E to use their creative thinking caps! We gave our BeePals our thoughts and opinions on how the cooperative Bee-Bot games should be played. We discussed rules, themes and visual art designs. The collaborative discussions went on through the afternoon and the design process began with our prototypes.

Kinder students are very capable at working together in cooperative groups. We do this everyday! It is amazing though, that Kinder Red has been able to use their higher-order thinking skills and creativity to collaborate extensively with our Stage 2 friends. We have appreciated design, problem-solved, discussed and accepted varying opinions within our small groups and used higher-order thinking to assist with the holistic development of these board games that will inevitably be used by both classes with the BeeBot robots to integrate with our COGs units, “Healthy Choices” and “Our Needs.”
