This companion lesson to “Clark the Shark” by Bruce Hale teaches students how to stay in control of their thoughts, feelings, and choices. It is designed for both distance and in-person learning with digital for Google Slides™, PowerPoint, and printable resources included.
THIS RESOURCE INCLUDES:
✅ Digital for Google Slides™ activity for distance learning or in-person learning on a device. Students learn about self-control and strategies for how to “stay cool” and in control of their behavior. 22 interactive drag-and-drop scenarios allow students to practice sorting between “in control” and “out of control” choices. Fillable text boxes let students reflect on their own behavior and choices.
✅ A PowerPoint version of the presentation that offers the same information, but is designed for in-person learning.
✅ A printable scenario sorting mat game for in-person learning with 24 scenario cards. Students read the scenario and either tell Clark, “it’s time to cool your jets!” or “way to stay cool!” Both a single mat option (perfect for projecting on a document camera) and a two mats option (great for smaller groups to incorporate movement) are included.
✅ 2 printable worksheets and 2 coloring pages.
✅ Document that shows how the lesson is aligned to ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors.
