2nd - 5th Grade
This is an activity to help children understand appropriate social interactions at a birthday party. A cartoon scenario is presented that depicts children at a party. A short story orients students to the overall situation. Four sections follow, including: facial expressions and gestures, perspective taking, supporting friends, and respecting others. Students are guided to "put themselves in the shoes" of characters and fill in the thoughts bubbles of each. The black and white cartoon can then be individually colored.
