A Picture of Cooperation
Find a newspaper photo that shows two or more people cooperating. Answer these questions:
Would one person be able to accomplish this task alone?
Why are these people cooperating with each other?
How did they decide to cooperate?
Spread a full sheet of the classified ads on the floor and lie down with your head and as much of your body as you can on the newspaper. Take a crayon and draw an outline of the top part of your body on the paper while you are lying on it. Don’t raise your head off the paper while you are doing this. Now stand up and look at your outline. Is it messy? Does it really look like your outline? Are the lines of the drawing connected? Try something different. Take another sheet of the classified ads and lie down the same way as before. Then ask a friend to draw your outline on the paper. Stand up and compare the two outlines. Which one is better? Write your name in big bold letters on the second outline. Under your name write “with cooperation from” and have your friend write his or her name.
