Teaching to think socially; Teaching Group and the Plan

This simple lesson reinforces what a group is by showing pictures of characters in a group and out of a group. The concept of the group plan is also taught by showing all kids in a group doing the same activity. I used this in conjunction with the Incredible Flexible You curriculum by Michelle Garcia Winner when trying to teach the concepts of what a group is and what it means to be following the group plan.


“Hand around” means “to give things to all people in a group”. Example: He didn’t ​hand the ​cookies around, he just ​sat and ​ate them himself!


This activity teaches children how to cope, stay focus, reduce impulse control behaviors while simultaneously socially participating in a group.
