Looking for a low-prep, interactive feelings lesson? Guaranteed you and your students will have tons of fun playing this quiz show style SEL activity!  Your students will  get to practice team building and executive functioning skills.  All the while learning about different feelings and emotions.



You can use this Game Show as a stand-alone classroom guidance feelings lesson and/or supplement to your social emotional learning activities. Great for your small groups, too!  Moreover, it’s distance learning ready:  it includes both Google Slides™ and Power Point Presentation files, which allows you to use for SEL distance learning, teletherapy, virtual counseling groups, school counseling guidance and in person lessons.


What’s Super Sweet About this Social Emotional Learning Lesson?

The Game Show format is hands-on and experiential.  Moreover, your students will use reflective thinking, cooperative learning, and be able to show off and build on their smarts in different ways.  Plus, the questions and challenges are 100% customizable so if you like, you can edit them to better fit your specific needs.  On top of that, it’s low-prep, perfect for all you busy counselors and teachers!  There’s even a school counseling guidance lesson plan included, too!


The Game Show Categories Are:

  • ACT IT OUT: teams act out / role play the challenge prompt.
  • TRUE or FALSE: teams decide whether the statement is true or false.
  • SKETCH IT: teams quickly draw their answers.
  • IMAGINE IF: teams answer “Imagine If” questions, using their imagination & problem solving skills.
  • RISK: teams take a “risk” because the type of question and/or challenge is not revealed until chosen.


What’s needed to play the Game Show?

  • If you are using this SEL feelings lesson in person, it is best used with a Promethean White Board or projector that that can be hooked up to your computer; it’s formatted as a power point presentation and now google slides™, too!
  • If using for distance learning, all players need internet access. Share your screen with students!
  • Want to go screen-free? No problem! This Game Show also comes with printable task cards with the same prompts as the Game Show challenges.


Provides lots of flexibility…

Given that the feelings lesson GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don’t have that much time….or that the GAME SHOW works best projected on a large screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down….or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day….and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities……I have included more than 6 additional formats that do not require the use of the power point presentation or google slides™. (Note: the additional activities do involve some printing prep-work.)

My students found this game type activity very exciting! Especially during Covid. They all had their whiteboards out and answered the questions, even though they were in teams. They found the questions under feelings quite interesting. They loved the format! It was a great way to talk about feelings and coping without hurting anyone’s feelings. I found the coping skills part a great tool do have the students discover. Even more, the resource is actually what it says it is. Thank you so much WholeHearted School Counseling.

My students always LOVE when I bring out the jeopardy games from WholeHearted School Counseling. I love how easy they are to use on Google Slides or PowerPoint from my iPad. The students are excited about the categories and the questions are a nice balance of easy and “take a few minutes to think about it.”

We used this as a review game after learning RULER from Marc Brackett. The kids loved it and it offered lots of opportunity for application.

My students really enjoyed this game show. What starts out as teams ends with all the students answering together – it brings them together. Looking forward to using it with my 4th graders as well.
