Many students call people “friends” and don’t realize that not everyone they call a “friend” is genuine. This may also sound familiar in the adult world, too!

⭐ This resource includes 36 scenarios related to friendships that provides students the opportunity to recognize signs of fake friends and signs of real friends. The scenarios can be used to help students determine, discuss, and even act out the differences between what real friendship looks like and what fake friendship looks like. They can role play "real friend" responses to situations and "fake friend" responses to situations. By learning how to recognize superficial friends, students can spare themselves toxic drama, and move on to choose friends that will last and add meaning to their lives - ALL TOO RELEVANT!

⭐ This resource includes 36 Task Cards (Brown and B&W) making both variations printer-friendly. Also included are 36 WORKSHEETS that include the same scenarios in the Task Cards. Students can write their responses to these scenarios as a Do Now activity, formative assessment, reflection period, independent or morning assignment, therapy session, etc.

How/When To Use the Scenario Task Cards

✅ Role-Playing: Students can collaborate in pairs or groups to act out a variety of scenarios and demonstrate the difference between "real" and "fake" friends responses. Role-playing activities can also be used to demonstrate how to appropriately handle or navigate difficult situations related to friends/friendships. Students will be exposed to a variety of ways they can handle or respond to "fake" friends in certain situations. This activity can ultimately improve confidence, communication, and assertiveness skills.

✅ Icebreaker: This can be a great way to start a meeting, training session, or team-building activity. It’s also a great way to get students to get to know each other and buy into the purpose of an upcoming activity or lesson.

✅ Play Writing Exercise: Students can work in groups to create skits or scenes then perform the skits for the class.

✅ Writing Response: Students can be given a scenario to read and then write their responses. Students can switch papers with a partner who then reads their responses and determines whether they agree/disagree with their responses/approaches to these real-life scenarios/ situations as well as their explanations to whether or not the friends are real or fake (in these situations).

✅ Discussion: Students can discuss the Scenario Task Cards in groups or whole class. They can discuss things like "Is this person a real or fake friend - why or why not?" "What ELSE would a real friend do or say in this situation?", "How can you respectfully handle this situation?" “Why would you do that?”, and “What are some other options you could consider in terms of what you would do or say to a 'friend' like this?"
