Today I share with you a dynamic of cooperation for your tutoring classes that I have taken to practice this course and I think you may like it. It is a dynamic that I have entitled ‘ What a head mine! and aims to work the importance of the selfless help of one partner towards the other.
I hope you like it. So, without further delay, we set sail.
Cooperation in the classroom
BEFORE THE ACTIVITY
Material: An object per student that can easily transport over his head.
Distribution: Standing freely walking through the classroom. You can choose an open space that is not the classroom.
Duration : 20′-30 ‘
Objective: To learn that sometimes when faced with a difficulty, the selfless help of a partner always comes in handy.
DURING THE ACTIVITY
During the dynamic, all students must move around the classroom freely with something on their head, such as:
- A case
- A sandwich
- House keys
- A book
- The agenda
- A piece of fruit
- The draft of the blackboard
When a student loses the object on his head, he must remain completely still. You can only walk again when a colleague picks up the object and puts it back on his head without dropping his own and without holding his own with his hands.
Tip: For the realization of the activity you can put a relaxing music if done in the classroom.
AFTER THE ACTIVITY
Here I leave some open questions that I think will be useful once the dynamics:
- What feeling have you had when your object has fallen from your head and you could not move?
- How did you feel when you were able to help a partner by raising his object by placing it back on his head?
- How would you relate this activity to the concept of ” self-esteem “?
