Have fun playing a familiar game while teaching children important life skills! This game is designed to help children manage anger in a thoughtful and non-aggressive way. Each card will offer a scenario where someone has done something as a result of an angry situation. Each player will be given the opportunity to reflect on the scenario and discuss whether or not it was a good way to handle angry feelings. There are cards which also offer techniques to diffuse anger and to help deal with angry feelings in a more productive way.
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.
