The Reflection Game

‘The Reflection Game’ is a cooperative construction toy that can only be completed using empathy. By aiming to bridge the gap between identifying emotions and responding to them, the toy actively engages students to practice compassion and take a positive step towards combating the ever increasing empathy crisis.

The game is used in the curriculum to build understanding in the school community and encourage an inclusive learning environment. Students learn to identify emotion, maintain composure and communicate effectively; developing their ability to manage their behaviour accordingly in future emotive situations.
