Product Description

This activity/game could be used as a beginning of the year 'get to know you', a midyear class building/bonding, or as a character education lesson for students with behavior issues. Statements about social norms are projected onto the board. For example, Skip classes, Record and post videos of people fighting, Brag about failing, Write thank you notes, and Apologize when they’ve done something wrong. Create an environment for students to play 4 Corners - for this game, the corners should be labeled EVERY DAY, SOMETIMES, HARDLY EVER, and NEVER.

After students have had an opportunity to read the statement, they must walk to the appropriate corner based on their own experiences and truth. Ask for a few students to share something about why they are in that corner. Place a new statement on the board and ask for students to move. Repeat these procedures until all 44 statements have been read. Students must be MATURE to participate in this activity. This works best when there is already a safe and respectful learning environment and class culture.
