Learning how to navigate social groups and relationships is a vital life skill…one that many students need help developing. CLIMB’s classes on cliques and exclusion–one for grades 3-6 and one for grades 3-8–will help students understand the line between forming groups of friends and being exclusive of others. They’ll practice being kind to everyone, even when it means standing up to your friends.
