“This is perfect! I think it’s easy to talk about what conflict is and and how to solve it…while doing this lesson it seems that the kids are recognizing their own responsibility in escalating a conflict in the past.”
“I love this lesson! Great way to teach this idea and its something that really seemed to stick with the kids. They would often reference the escalator, even months later!”
“Perfect activity to talk about conflict and calming down strategies for the beginning of the year. My grade 4’s really got it and enjoyed working in partners categorizing each statement.”
