6 Awesome Cooperative Classroom Games
How often has this scenario played out in your classroom? Youíve planned a fantastic lesson that involves students working together and learning together. In your well-crafted plans, the students are engaged in the activities, supporting one another, and growing as a learning community. Sounds wonderful, doesnít it?
So why donít these activities always work out as planned?
Cooperative games differ from competitive games, as games (e.g. basketball, soccer) tend to focus on winning or losing, while cooperative games do not have to have a sole winner, as the objective is for all teams to succeed.
We have compiled a list of fantastic cooperative games for all grade levels. Although these activities may just seem like a fun pastime, these games are actually vital teaching tools that will allow your students to develop their collaborative skills.

Instant Activities
http://tinyurl.com/bcmmx
The purpose of an instant activity is to keep the students moving. You want to involve students in an activity as quickly as possible. The criteria for an instant activity is that it involves every student, there is little teacher involvement, it is safe, there is no elimination and it maintains a high level of activity for all students. After a few minutes of vigorous activity, students are ready to listen for instructions about the day's lesson. Here are some instant activities you might like to try in your class.

Playing Group Games from the Past k-3
http://www.learningtogive.org/lessons/unit194/lesson5.html
Playing Group Games from the Past
Can playing games together help to build unity in our classroom and school community? The students will compare games played by children in the past to today�s games.
There will be an emphasis on how games of the past included much more togetherness and cooperation as compared to the individuality of today�s popular video and computer games. Children will learn to play some games from the past and then share these with another class in the school, playing with them as a community.
