Cooperation is teamwork. Cooperation is used at camp when you are setting up tents. Cooperation is friends needing each other.

When people are cooperating, you hear, “keep up the good work. Nice job. You’re doing good.”

Cooperating people are patient, respectful and work hard as a group. People succeed at their goals when they are working hard.

A basketball team cooperates. People who are cooperative are trustworthy. People who cooperate are nice and gentle.

We use cooperation when we are doing a school project. Cooperation happens on Battle of the Book trips. I see teams studying hard to take first place. They do not fool around.

Cooperation is important because you won’t be left out. We need cooperation to make our lives easier. It is important for making my life a lot easier. I don’t have to go through all the hard problems in life alone. It makes me feel better when I see people cooperating because I know they care.

People can show cooperation by talking about a problem. Cooperation can be demonstrated by needing each other. You can show cooperation by working together. It makes me feel good to show cooperation. It makes me feel better inside.End Article

Kiana fourth graders

If one person goes out hunting and falls off a boat and can’t get up, he or she may die. If two persons go and one falls off the boat, one person can help the other person. If one person is dead or sick, the other person can drive the boat. If something is chasing them, the other person can shoot it.End Article
