Do you have students who struggle with their behavior in the classroom: who have extreme reactions to trivial problems, who blurt out in class, or who have trouble making friends? You can help them with Zoo U®, an evidence-based, online game for students in grades 2-4.
Zoo U Evaluates and Improves
Six short scenes at the beginning of the game provide a baseline for how students are doing with social and emotional skills: communication, cooperation, emotion regulation, empathy, impulse control, and social initiation.
Students then have an opportunity to play up to 30 scenarios to improve and reinforce learning for each of these skills.
As an example, the scene below depicts a classmate being teased after Lester the bird drops smelly fruit on him.
After students complete a scene, Principal Wild, the quirky but helpful school administrator, provides positive and constructive feedback on their choices. In this example, did the student choose to laugh along with his classmates, or stand up for his embarrassed friend?
The entire Zoo U game takes 10-15 hours to complete. We encourage you to spread out gameplay over a semester or the school year by having students play one or two times a week for approximately 30 minutes per session. However, you know your students best, so it’s your decision as to exactly how you want to use the program.
