Task cards with ranking chart to help discuss the size of a given problem and determine an appropriate response. The activity, includes 35 cards with social scenarios that often occur to students in mid to upper elementary grades. I found students often had difficulty thinking of a wide range of scenarios when discussing this as a lesson. These examples helped to get them thinking and talking in a group.

Students compare their responses to other scenarios and their peer responses by placing them on a thermometer. They may judge a response to be at a low level, a glitch, to the highest level, a crisis that is difficult to correct. By referring to the visual aid, students see how their reaction compare to other problems and if their reaction is appropriate to their reaction. This can lead to a talk about possible solutions.
