Coping Skills for Kids

2018-09-05T12:20:41+00:00

In coping skills worksheets, students will sort coping strategies into “smart” and “not smart” columns. When I need to calm down I go to the boxing gym, maybe have some wine, shirk my responsibilities and watch TV all afternoon, call my best friend, etc. As an adult, I’ve [...]

Facts vs. Assumptions

2018-05-11T15:17:48+00:00

This printable will help students differentiate between facts and assumptions. I always wanted to be a detective when I was little. I carried a little notebook around and took down details about the goings-on in my neighborhood, hoping to uncover some sort of sinister plot. I’d pretend to [...]

Cooperative Art

2018-11-08T10:01:51+00:00

In this activity, students will work together to create a collaborative artwork, counting on their classmates to do their best work. When I was a student, I always hated group projects. As a type-A perfectionist, it always seemed like I was stuck doing a lot of the work [...]

People Watching

2018-05-11T14:52:22+00:00

In this  activity, students will become social detectives, observing people’s body language and facial expressions in public spaces to figure out how they may be feeling. I love people watching. While I usually avoid the mall, it’s definitely the best place to people watch. You’ve got teens being [...]
