The importance of teamwork for children
Teamwork requires people to work cooperatively with others towards a shared purpose. For a team to work together effectively, it takes all members of the team to respect each other’s abilities and opinions. Teamwork is a highly social activity and involves much interaction and exchanging of ideas and actions.
Being part of a team enables the child to move from individualistic ways of thinking to communicating with others. It will help the child in all areas of learning, and help him/ her to feel part of a community, too.
Working as part of a team will strengthen the child’s social and emotional skills, help develop his/ her communication skills, and can improve his/ her self-confidence.
