Have fun playing a familiar game while teaching children important life skills! This game helps players deal with the transitions that happen during middle school and the “drama” often experienced by those changes. Middle school is often a dramatic and emotional time for girls. It is a time of transition in many areas? changing bodies, raging hormones, shifting friendships, and conflicting feelings about who they are and who they feel they should be. Peer pressure and the desire to fit in can be overwhelming. This game helps to teach girls to better cope with these emotional challenges.
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.
