This lesson can be taught either collaboratively, or solely by the classroom teacher. The teacher(s) can begin by modeling how to use puppets to role play a conflict scenario. The teacher(s) can create problem scenarios by using social skills books, or taking events that they have observed in real life. A story book is often a good introduction to themes of conflict, and teachers can ask students to draw upon the vocabulary that they use in their classroom to offer solutions. Key phrases and vocabulary are important, since they are used as cues for appropriate behavior.
