Healthy Versus Unhealthy Friendships SEL PowerPoint And Game
About This Product
In this lesson, students will learn about the difference between healthy and unhealthy friendship behaviors. I use the analogy of a stoplight to distinguish between green (healthy), yellow (warning), and red (unhealthy) friendship behaviors. There is a 9-slide PowerPoint presentation that walks you through the entire lesson with slide notes. After the presentation, there is a reinforcing friendship game. The game board and 36 editable friendship behavior cards are on slides 10-19 and can be printed off in color or black and white. The game board needs to be printed in color. There is a fun and short video to show the class about friendship. I utilize whole group, small group, and partner activities in this lesson for engagement and variety. This lesson can flexibly span between 30-45 minute periods based on the amount of discussion you encourage and your needs/time constraints.
This resource would be well paired with the Friendship Stoplight Boom Deck I made here: https://teachsimple.com/product/friendship-stoplight-boom-cards In this Boom Deck, students will learn about the 3 different types of friendship behaviors; red, yellow and green. There are 30 cards (some instructional cards explaining the different friendship behaviors) and plenty of task cards for an entire class to take turns on the Smartboard to decide if a situation is red, yellow or green. This is an important friendship skill when learning about making and keeping friends. Both of these resources are great for third, fourth, fifth, sixth and middle school. Feel free to also take a look at the product specifically for teaching children about sharing friendships; https://teachsimple.com/product/sharing-friendships-lesson-and-fun-cooperative-game The first part of the lesson is about the skill of sharing friendships. Then you can print off the cooperative game where students play together for a group goal.
A PowerPoint lesson as well as a game board and game cards to reinforce the concepts.
