|Teaching students about cooperation. Being cooperative is a great character trait to have. How can your students be more cooperative? How do they feel when they are not part of the group? Have them write three rules for the classroom to help others remember how to be more cooperative. Should there be a consequence for students not being cooperative? If so, what should that be? If someone isn't cooperative what can you do? Have your students make a colorful poster about cooperation to hang around the school.
