Social skills lesson that teaches students about behaviors that help or hurt friendships to increase their social emotional learning in the area of making and keeping friends.
Students will sort different gems which have behaviors/words that help or hurt friendships into either the treasure box or trash can, determining whether they are words/behaviors that you would treasure (keep) or trash (get rid of).
This activity takes about 30 minutes to complete with a small or large group. The goal is for students to identify words and behaviors that can help or hurt friendships.
Activity description including instructions/walkthrough of activity, objectives, materials, and ASCA standards.
4 pages of Gems (with different words/behaviors that help or hurt friendships)
1 blank page of Gems to make your own
1 page with the treasure chest/trash pictures.
***This activity is also available as part of my Social Skills Small Group Counseling Curriculum
