Have fun playing a familiar game while teaching children important life skills! This game helps players learn to adjust to a new school environment. They may worry about making friends, their academic progress, asking for help, or who they will sit with at lunch, etc. This game helps middle school students successfully deal with these common fears and pressures by providing coping skills and techniques that work.
Based on the popular card game 21, players learn key skills while they try to get as close to 21 as possible without going over. These games use eight different “smart” sharks to deliver the skill sets in an effective way that middle schoolers can relate to. The scenario based cards represent the typical issues faced by middle school students on a daily basis. These games are a must have for middle-school aged children trying to deal with the demands of their peer group and challenges in school and after-school activities.
Each game comes in a sturdy box with a deck of 52 cards, facilitator’s guide, rules sheet, and a color foldout of the skills taught in the game.
