Free Classroom Activities

Part of our mission is to empower children and adults with social-emotional skills that help them realize their goals in the classroom and throughout their lives. In keeping with that, and in an effort to help educators engage with their students and reinforce the social-emotional skills they’re teaching, we’ve created this Classroom Activities Page.

Here you’ll find materials that have been developed for preschool through middle school classrooms by our Second Step team of experts. These activities align with the Second Step K–5 Suite—which includes Second Step SEL, the Child Protection Unit, and the Bullying Prevention Unit—and with Mind Yeti for Schools, a mindfulness program designed for elementary-aged students.

Bookmark this page and share it with your colleagues because we’ll be continually adding activities for you to use at your school.
