Engaging Conflict Resolution Activities for Middle School

If you’re like most middle schoolers, you know that school is a time for learning and fun. But sometimes, conflict can arise and need to be resolved. Here are some conflict resolution activities that can help you work through disagreements:

  1. Talk to one another. When two people have a disagreement, it can help them talk to each other to better understand what is happening.
  2. Honesty is key. If you’re trying to resolve a conflict and you’re not honest, it will only make the other person angrier and more upset. So, honesty is the key to successful conflict resolution.
  3. Agree to disagree. Suppose you can agree to disagree and work together to come up with a resolution. In that case, it will be easier to handle the conflict.
  4. Be patient. Trying to resolve a conflict may take some time. Be patient and allow the other person to calm down.
  5. Teach calming skills. Students must learn to calm down and take distance from the conflict before responding, so they can respond with their whole brains.
