This board game gives students important skills for (a) recognizing feelings in themselves and others, (b) expressing feelings in a mature way, and (c) handling difficult situations that involve strong or negative feelings.
Understanding and expressing feelings are the most basic of skills. Students who have these skills can "read" social and emotional situations correctly and can deal with interpersonal problems effectively. Without the skills to understand the feelings of others or to express feelings through language, students often revert to physical aggression.
The game board has all the attractions of a carnival or fair. Players journey through the fair, picking cards that enhance their understanding and skills for expressing feelings. The various rides in the fair represent strategies for dealing with problems related to feelings. In order to make the game challenging for students in grades one through five, the game box contains two sets of Solving Problem Cards (one for grades 1 and 2, and one for grades 3 - 5). There are also two sets of rules.
Opened games are NOT returnable.
For 2 - 6 players.
