Goal

The HoPS program will demonstrate to students the importance of reading comprehension, following written and verbal instructions, and working in a team. It provides the opportunity for students to understand the importance of each team member’s unique abilities. They will learn how to be critical and creative thinkers, problem solvers, and efficient information managers, while building teamwork, citizenship, and sportsmanship skills.  

 

What will be done with my students

HoPS is a 2 ½ hour “in school” field trip. Prior to HoPS coming to the school, the students will form teams of 4-5 students. Each HoPS event has four hands-on problem solving activities that will enhance the student’s creative and critical problem solving skills. The students rotate through each of the four activities. The completion of each activity depends on how well the students work together as a team. Teams earn points as they solve each challenge. After the completion of the four challenges, the students come together to recognize team accomplishments. Prizes for the top three teams for each challenge awarded as well as overall top 3 teams. All teams receive a personalized certificate and froggy treats. 

 

Benefits to my students

HoPS will benefit the students in the following way: Improve reading and following direction skills, leadership skills, cooperative learning skills, decision making abilities and critical problem solving skills. It will help the students recognize that each member of the team has unique abilities and talents that are essential for success, and it will help the students cultivate effective interactive teamwork skills.
