Game to teach and develop social skills.
This fun game allows young people to uncover their perceptions, choices and the importance of having sound social skills. Some 'social high' squares will allow players to move up the arrows while other 'social low' situations result in them moving down. Other squares will require them to answer questions about a range of situations related to their own and others' social skills such as:
Working in a group
Good and bad communication
Acting and thinking independently.
