TV That Promotes Teamwork

Developing character strengths and life skills is essential to kids' overall growth and success. These TV shows help kids learn the value of working respectfully and effectively within a group -- and of doing their share. The character strength of teamwork surfaces in these shows by being intrinsic to the story and being repeated several times in the actions of a lead character, and it "wins" over character flaws such as thinking only of oneself. (See even more movies and TV shows that promote teamwork.)
