Bullying & harassment situation cards

Exceptional activity cards which can be used with individuals or with groups, feature real-life bullying / harassment situations which actively educate by encouraging students to debate and discuss solutions. This 60-card set depicts bullying dilemmas familiar to students of all ages, and can be used in school or youth settings.

The situations allow young people to explore various options and consequences as they learn to resolve bullying and harassment dilemmas without the threat of an actual confrontation; this gives them enough time to ‘think’, which promotes effective learning. Bullying situations include:
• Physical
• Sexual
• Name-calling
• In-direct
• Being a bystander.

Emotions Blob Cards

Encourage young people to talk about emotions.  What are the Blobs? They are neither male nor female, young or old, slave or free! They are open to interpretation. Each character could be you, your best friend or a personal enemy. What’s true for you might be completely the opposite for someone else. Blobs are a way to discuss issues in a deep, meaningful way and yet they can be understood by adults and children alike.

The groups of Blobs on these cards are acting in many familiar ’human’ ways: celebrating, fighting, feeling left out, supporting or ignoring each other. Looking at Blobs together instead of alone enables you to explore a wide range of feelings and emotions to do with personal and social interaction.

Contents: 48 full-colour cards and 8 instruction/ideas cards containing suggestions for activities with small or large groups and one to one, boxed
