Games about co-operation

We can nurture co-operation in our classrooms in many ways. Our own behaviour, including the ways that we treat children and adults reinforce co-operative behaviour among learners.

We can also make use of games and activities that help children experience and learn co-operative and constructive ways of interacting.

Review these games and use them with the children in your classrooms. You might also be interested in

The three games featured here first appeared in Gender Dimensions: Constructing interpersonal skills in the classroom, by Andrea Allard and Jeni Wilson.
