  • Look like
  • Do
  • Say
  • Does not do
After we discuss what it means to be a good team player, students will be broken up into small groups. They will be working together as a team to build with paper cups. The expectation will be to build the tallest tower of cups without it falling down. Students will be making a plan and working together in groups of 4 or 5 to build their tower. 

We will be wrapping up with questions on how their team worked together.

  1. Was anyone frustrated at all during this activity? If so how was it handled?
  2. Why was teamwork so important for this activity?
  3. Are you ever in a situation where you must use teamwork? Is this always easy for you? Why or why not?
  4. What are some skills needed to be a good at teamwork?
  5. What is so hard about teamwork?
  6. What did you do today to contribute to the teamwork on your team?
