Cooperative learning is a means of helping children work together in order to enlarge their learning. Cooperative learning groups are organized to work on projects together, solve mathematics and science problems, do experiments, share stories, read to each other, and the like. In second through sixth grade, children can work together in groups of three or four. In such groups the children will take turns being the moderator, the reporter/recorder, or the monitor of the group's progress.
