Students in my science classes work in teams. Although my students come to me familiar with the idea of "group work" they still need practice with the idea of working as a team.

I have to teach what this looks like during the first week of school.  

There are a number of great teamwork lessons easily available on the web.  I have used one called Marble Ramps for the past few years.

The beauty of this lesson is that it gives me a change to teach group work procedures and reinforce procedures for getting supplies and cleaning up too.

This year I am adding something new to the lesson - a kind-of/sort-of graphic organizer for their notebooks.  We are setting up the notebooks tomorrow, so this will be the first item in it.
