Switch Seats is an activity from High 5 Adventure Learning Center’s Rebuilding After COVID professional development program, one of 32 experiential SEL activities designed to help teachers manage the impact of the pandemic on their students. Switch Seats is a useful tool to help students actively engage in sharing their experiences during the pandemic and acknowledge the spectrum of realities experienced since March 2020. We help build empathy when we realize that, as the saying goes, “while we are not in the same boat, we are all in the same storm.” Although we’ve all been dealing with loss of some kind, our respective experiences may not have been the same.
