Working in groups with your peers is something we do every day at OOSH.

Group work has many benefits to children’s developmental learning such as:

* Better high-level reasoning and critical thinking skills

* Deeper understanding of learned material

* Lower levels of anxiety and stress

* Greater intrinsic motivation to learn and achieve

* Greater ability to view situations from others’ perspectives

* More positive and supportive relationships with peers

* Higher self-esteem

* Appropriate use of collaborative skills

* Students are encouraged and helped to develop and practice team skills such as leadership, communication, and conflict management.
