Pequenakonck Elementary School kindergartners learn to develop solutions to dilemmas they encounter every day as part of their problem-solving learning.

Students learned the steps to problem-solving, which begin with identifying the problem, followed by identifying strategies they can use to solve the problem and saying the solution out loud. Then, students learned to reflect by thinking about how their solution played out and set goals for next time.

Watch the below video to see kindergartners act out the problem-solving process.
