Life is Like a Box of (Coping Skills)

We never know from one day to the next what life will throw at us. It is important for our students to learn effective coping skills to deal with their problems whether big or small.


This activity encourages discussion about how to deal with different situations. Some problems can be fixed while others can not.


Each student will receive a scenario card to use while completing the coping skills sheet. After everyone has completed the sheet, students will share the scenarios from their cards along with their suggested coping skills.
