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.
  • Teach players about the importance of manners and consideration in their daily lives
  • Includes home, school, and sports scenarios
  • Includes two decks of cards, one for each grade level
  • Grades: K-2, 3-5

There are two decks of 50 cards in each game - one for grades K-2 and the other for grades 3-5. The games differ from classic go fish in that players must answer a question before they can accept a requested card. Instead of the usual number and picture cards, the cards have fun pictures of fish and fish names. For example, a player may ask "Do you have any Henry Herrings?" If the player receives a Henry Herring card, the player reads the question on the card aloud and answers it. All questions are open ended. If the player did not have any Henry Herrings, the player would say, "go fish," and then the first player would take a card from the "ocean" (extra cards in the center of the table). Each game comes with a rules sheet and facilitator guidelines.
