Módulo 3: Why do teams exist in Nature? (English)




This module aims introducing students to teamwork and cooperation. We will use activities where students will have to solve problems using individual or collective solutions, and then evaluating the consequences of each kind of behaviour. At the next step, students will study how organisms interact and organise in nature to solve problems. Later, teacher may use role-playing and guided application of the insights resulting from the previous steps to challenge students to apply them to solve human problems and organise society. Finally, teacher will challenge students to solve different situations using any way of organisation they choose.
