Co-op Class Ideas

Recommended Posts





building challenges (e.g. how tall can you make a stack of index cards balanced on their edges?, how far can that paper airplane fly? how can you cushion the egg so it doesn't break when you drop it?)


These building challenges are fun, quick, and cheap.

You can expand on the lessons to teach physics concepts.

Put the kids in groups for experience working in teams.

Ok I did one for little kids but I bet you could adapt it for middle and high school kids if you are just looking for a fun elective.  We did a Celebrations class.  I have a big book on Celebrations, such as National Chocolate Day, National Wear your Hat backwards day, So and So's birthday, special events...http://www.amazon.com/Celebrations-Holidays-Different-Remember-stretchers/dp/0865300321/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1447251366&sr=1-1&keywords=celebrations+marjorie+frank&pebp=1447251369849&perid=0B0QBTGGKJYM640TDSHJ


What you could do is some sort of activity based on that particular day. This way there is a lot of variety in the class.  


Other ideas might be a drama/improv class or a debate class.
