"Co-operation is a team operation. Side by side we will not divide."
It was a bit awkward putting our arm around somebody else's shoulder, but we got over it.
We got in a circle, then had to hold the hand/arm of a person in the circle, but is not beside you. We then had to take somebody by the left hand. Finally, we had to untangle ourselves without letting go. We weren't listening properly... And we let go!
Second time around, we got there... But it was a real test of our respectful communication.
We talked about how we need to co-operate when we play sport. We can't do it on our own in a team sport. We need to work together to succeed.
Tuesday afternoons we split into kapahaka & STEM. Both of them require lots of co-operation. Positive communication goes really well with co-operation.
Our next activity... We needed to co-operate to to get our whole team on a piece of paper, without falling on the Lino. Once we did that, we could fold the paper in half to see if we could co-operate to solve the problem.
Collaboration... Working together to achieve a common goal.
