Collaborative Classrooms

Updated: Apr 15, 2020

Hello Gardeners!

We know the sentiment rings true that we are better together than we are as individuals. When we work together, we balance out each other's strengths and weaknesses. Today on the blog, we are looking at why classroom #collaboration is important and provide you with some creative, collaborative activities!

Why is collaboration so important?

Collaboration urges us to:

1. Communicate

2. Negotiate and problem solve

3. Feel confident in sharing our ideas

4. Gain deeper insight into the subject

5. Enjoy working with others!

Collaborative learning is a great way to build social and emotional learning (#SEL) into your lesson plan. Not only are your students developing a deeper understanding into the material (by summarizing and analyzing the material or negotiating differing opinions), but they are developing major communication skills and a confidence and joy in working with people.

How do you work collaborative learning into your classroom?

We found some amazing activities to give you some ideas!
