Have fun playing a familiar game while teaching children important life skills! This game helps youngsters improve social and emotional skills in relation to character. The questions are designed to encourage players to give examples from their own experience about behavior that demonstrates good character and to help players understand the meaning of common character traits. Players will understand the concept of character, several important character traits, and how good character traits help them handle life issues and challenges effectively. Players will also learn that character is demonstrated by behavior. Teach players why parents, school officials, and other adults can be expected to hold students responsible for dishonesty and other examples of bad character.
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.
