This game has been designed to give students important skills for:
- Recognizing feelings in themselves and others
- Expressing feelings in a mature way
- Handling difficult situations that involve strong or negative feelings
Students who possess these skills can “read” social and emotional situations correctly and can deal with interpersonal problems effectively.
The game has a carnival or fair theme, and players journey through the fair picking cards that enhance their understanding and skills for expressing feelings. The various rides in the fair represent strategies for dealing with problems related to feelings.
The game contains two age-appropriate sets of cards; there are also two sets of rules. Grades 1 to 5.
