Do you have a student who doesn’t understand the tricky social norms of personal space? This student is always walking too close in line, standing too close, sitting too close, and causing anxiety in others. Perhaps you have a class full of students who are always “too close” and one little kiddo who has an enormous personal bubble that he doesn’t want his friends near! How do you teach your class to respect other's invisible personal bubble? And how do you teach your student to advocate for himself in a kind and socially appropriate manner? This game was designed to be played after reading and working through the social story “Personal Space” which can be found here - Social Story: "Personal Space"- two social stories in one unit
It is meant to be a companion product, but can be played alone.
This comprehensive unit includes:
★ Game board

INVADERS – this game is to teach a child to advocate for themselves in a kind and socially acceptable manner when they feel uncomfortable.
