On a budget? My Spare Change Speech products will save you money and give you great products for minimal cost! Fix Up! Is a quick problem solving game that gives students a chance to think of solutions to simple injuries or illnesses.
Print and laminate all pages for durability. Each player has a doctors bag in front of them and scenario cards (blue cards) are placed in a pile upside down. Students take turns picking up a card and reading the scenario. Each card tells of a character who has minor injury or illness. The student has to think of one or more solutions to help the character.
Students should be encouraged to think of common sense solutions or everyday treatments that they or a parent/teacher could help with rather than always thinking a doctor/hospital. Some scenario’s are more serious so the student will have a chance to decide/show when an injury or illness needs medical attention. If a student gives a good solution to “fix up” the character they earn a bandaid for their doctors bag. The winner is the student with the most bandaids.
This game is useful to understand a students ability to solve problems or learn more about how they react to injury/illness- do they overreact/underact or have an idea how to help others or themselves when things happen to them.
Ideal for small group work or speech therapy!
