Bullying is not a game—but helping kids learn anti-bullying concepts can be. And when learning is fun and interactive, kids are more likely to retain key ideas. Based on The Bully Free Classroom® by Allan L. Beane, Ph.D., this card game plays like Crazy Eights, so most kids will have some familiarity with the process. The cards are divided into four categories: “What Would You Do If...,” “Self-Esteem Boosters,” “Ways to Stay Bully Free,” and “Why Should You Do This?” Kids get rid of cards (and move closer to being “out,” or “bully free”) by offering reasonable suggestions and responses to questions. Meant to be played with adult supervision (a teacher, counselor, or youth worker familiar with anti-bullying themes), the game includes an insert with rules and basic anti-bullying concepts.
