Each student will need a sorting mat. Students will read a situation and discuss if the behavior is expected or unexpected. If a special card is drawn, students will follow the instructions on the card. Blank cards are included to create additional social situations. Students could work in groups to brainstorm situations.
Three handouts are included. Students will color or create a superhero. Also, they will provide an example of an expected and unexpected behavior.
This activity is based on the work of Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking curriculum.
