Kelly Bear Board Game PhotoA Cooperative Journey Game for grades K-5.

The Kelly Bear game is a children's journey game with a goal that is reached through cooperation rather than competition. The players help Kelly Bear, themselves and each other by answering the questions and moving their play piece up through two rest areas to the top of the mountain before eight "Time Cards" are turned over. Children's character development, self-awareness, self-confidence and goal setting are enhanced as they and their peers respond to the questions. Through careful listening and observing, a parent, grandparent, counselor or other adult can gain valuable insight into the children's lives, as well as into the ways they interact with others.  ($59.95) #388347
