Play-2-Learn Go Fish Card Games
by Franklin Rubenstein, PhD
Here’s a therapeutic twist on the classic Go Fish card game. The 12 versions presented here teach youngsters about character, responsibility, friendship, anger control, conflict resolution, feelings, stress, bullying, self-esteem, success, self-control, and manners. Each game includes two decks of 50 cards (one deck for grades K–2, the other for grades 3–5). And each card poses an open-ended question that the player must answer before he or she can request Henry Herring, Markey Mackerel, or any other fish needed for a match. Familiar and fun, Go Fish is an easy, affordable way for children to improve their social and emotional skills.
  • This game provides players with the skills needed to manage conflict in an appropriate and socially acceptable way
  • Includes two decks of cards, one for each grade level
  • For 2-5 players
  • Grades: K-2, 3-5

Based on the popular card game, Go Fish, this game helps youngsters improve social and emotional skills in relation to conflict resolution. Players will learn the skills needed to resolve conflict in an assertive and nonviolent way and how to avoid conflict. Teach players how to overcome conflict calmly and thoughtfully can lead to healthier and happier relationships. Help players understand when intervention by an adult is needed. Scenario cards present brief but detailed conflict situations that players are asked to resolve calmly and effectively. By practicing strategies such as apologizing, compromising, and listening, players learn to adopt behaviors that can enhance their relationships at home, at school, and within the community.There are two decks of 50 cards; one for each grade level. The game differs from classic go fish in that players must answer a question before they can accept a requested card. Instead of numbers on the cards they all have fun fish names and pictures. Rules sheet and facilitator guidelines included.
