Students learn to successfully manage 90 social situations in areas such as self-control, eating, emotions, solving problems, and more.

Use these full-color cards to help your students learn to discriminate between appropriate and inappropriate responses. The back of each card includes a summary of the social situation and questions to stimulate discussion and develop social problem solving. The 200 cards are versatile-use them for discussion starters, role-playing, story starters, and for sharing experiences.

The ten skills areas are:
