Kids LOVE playing computer and video games. Why not make them educational? There are some great games on-line out there that teach bully prevention and bully awareness. I found these on a number of sites.
I’ve played each and highly recommend all of them. They are also very short and super easy. Here they are and the links to each.

School Daze Crazy Maze – http://pbskids.org/itsmylife/games/middleschool_flash.html
Rumor Control – http://pbskids.org/itsmylife/games/rumorcontrol_flash.html

Make sure to play these yourself BEFORE recommending them to your students. Although I love them, there may be content that could be construed as “against school policy”.
I appreciate your comments.
