|Our students brainstormed expected versus unexpected behaviors, and|
how others think of us when we engage in unexpected behaviors.
|The Unthinkables are "bad guys" who send our brain the ideas to behave in "unexpected" ways.|
|Our students read about how the hero, "Superflex," uses strategies such as positive self-talk, calming deep breaths, thinking about what others are thinking about, and matching our reaction to the size of the problem, to defeat the Unthinkables.|
|Our students learned about each bad guy "Unthinkable," along with ways to defeat them. They used calming strategies to reduce their emotion levels on the emotions thermometer from angry/exploding down to calm/cool.|
|Our students figured out which calming strategies worked best for them when they were frustrated.|
|Our students played egg-hunt games in which they used strategies to defeat the Unthinkables in each egg given a variety of situations.|
