Have fun playing a familiar game while teaching children important life skills! This game provides players with the skills needed to manage conflict in an appropriate and socially acceptable way and helps youngsters improve social and emotional skills in relation to conflict resolution. Players will learn the skills needed to resolve conflict in an assertive and nonviolent way and how to avoid conflict. Teach players how to overcome conflict calmly and thoughtfully can lead to healthier and happier relationships. Help players understand when intervention by an adult is needed. Scenario cards present brief but detailed conflict situations that players are asked to resolve calmly and effectively. By practicing strategies such as apologizing, compromising, and listening, players learn to adopt behaviors that can enhance their relationships at home, at school, and within the community.
Play-2-Learn: Go Fish Card Games play like the classic Go Fish. There are two decks of 50 cards in each game – Grades K-2 and 3-5.
The games differ from classic go fish in that players must answer a question before they can accept a requested card. Instead of the usual number and picture cards, the cards have fun pictures of fish and fish names. For example, a player may ask, “Do you have any Henry Herrings?” If the player receives a Henry Herring card, the player reads the question on the card aloud and answers are open ended. If the player did not have any Henry Herrings, the player would say, “go fish,” and then the first player would take a card from the “ocean” (extra cards in the center of the table).
Each game also comes with a rules sheet and facilitator guidelines.
