3rd - 8th Grade
If you use cooperative learning in your classroom, you will probably be forming new teams when you return to school in January. It's important to do some type of team building activity when students are first placed together in a team so they can connect with each other personally. Use the New Year Reflections spinner as a fun way for your students think about the old year and look ahead to 2014. Team members spin the spinner and discuss the questions. Spending five to ten minutes on a simple ice breaker can make a big difference when setting up new teams!
