Learning how to manage conflicts successfully is a crucial skill for students of all ages. This gentle and nurturing site combines multimedia elements with interactive activities to create a safe and entertaining "place" for elementary students to experiment with a variety of coping skills and approaches. Through the character of "Maria" and her friends, students can learn effective ways to respond to and resolve uncomfortable confrontations without walking away or fighting. Includes downloadable worksheets. Headphones needed.

tag(s): conflict resolution (10)

Save this site as a favorite on classroom computers, and have students peruse the website individually. The most effective use would be to have students with behavior problems or aggression to examine it individually. Some of the content is a little corny, but it does get some very important points across. For a guarantee students were paying attention, have them complete some of the printable worksheets that accompany the website after viewing the presentation.

This might be better at the end of a civics course, culminating all the information they have learned thus far and showing a practical application of it.
