The Catholic Toolbox- The Golden Rule (file folder game)
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. What does this mean? It means we should treat others the same way you want them to treat you. This game helps promote why someone would use proper manners and etiquette in our daily lives.
The Catholic Toolbox- How RUDE!
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. What does this mean? It means we should treat others the same way you want them to treat you. That is easier said than done. Do you respect everyone and treat them kindly at all times? During our daily contact with others we can show compassion and generosity by treating them with respect and courtesy. This dignified and respectable behavior that we give to others is part of what Jesus was talking about. Try your best to treat others as you would like to be treated and you will find that it will help you so much in everyday life with getting along with others. This game is a fun and exciting way to review what is considered rude behavior in today’s society. Players or teams roll the dice and move that many spaces on the board. Whichever color is on the space you land on indicates the color card that will be used. The player to your left will read the card aloud to you and you will try to answer correctly. If you answer your question correctly, you may stay where you are. If you are not correct, everyone says, “How Rude!” and you move back to where you were. The first player or team to get to the “FINISH,” square first is the WINNER!
