Fourth-graders in Elizabeth Baird’s class at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School focused on lessons in teamwork during the first week of school. The class discussed the importance of teamwork, what it means to work together and effective communication in a group. Students were put into teams and were given two minutes to brainstorm and strategize on how they could make the highest tower using 40 mini cups. They were then given three minutes to see which team could build the highest tower. Afterward, they discussed what they could have done differently and what worked or didn't work for them.
