BOARD GAME ON
Playing board games is important for a child’s mental and social development and can teach all ages about teamwork, patience, and how to win and lose gracefully. Board games can also benefit kids' brains and language development and are an easy way to encourage healthy brain development in older kids and teens. Strategy games can help with development of the part of the brain that is responsible for executive function skills, which includes planning, organizing, and making good decisions, while having fun!
Goal: A group for adolescents to develop and practice interpersonal skills through participation in board games with peers.
Objectives: To help encourage verbal expression, communication, and teamwork while building qualities like patience, determination, concentration and memory by focusing on the game set-up, rules,
and when it’s their turn to make a move.
1. Practice social skills by interacting with others, and communicating through game play - away from digital play.
2. Strengthen executive function skills by addressing direction following, planning and flexible thinking through game play.
3. Have fun and form new friendships!
