Gratitude, Courage, Adversity, Unity and Cooperation Character Conversation Cards
Choose these cards if:
- you want to have ideas for conversations with children 6 to 13 years old.
- you want to talk about values and hear your children talk through situations, give opinions and you influence them before they happen.
- you want to a way to talk meaningfully about subjects without pointing the finger or making something up on the spot ( We’ve all been there!)
- you want guided conversations practicing empathy and different views of life from alternative perspectives. ( It’s not just what’s in it for me but why would they do it?)
Each pack is different.
Within this pack:
- 10 cards on Gratitude
- 10 cards on Courage and Adversity
- 5 cards on Unity and Cooperation
Each card had a short real life situation and different questions afterwards to encourage longer answers and especially, “What would you do?”
Read out the situation and allow plenty of time for discussion. Each situation is easy to adjust to suit your age, stage, place and time. It’s also easy to extend the discussion to make it more relevant.
Print what you need or keep it on your phone to read and use wherever you are.
