Where, Oh, Where Is My Friend?

Increase independence of identifying and locating people in room using a sound localization game.

This activity has been revised and was originally created by Charlotte Cushman and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992).  The second edition is available for purchase.

An important part of social development is recognizing familiar people, such as friends and classmates. This activity works on that recognition while increasing social interaction and encouraging group activities. It also works to improve sound localization and visual scanning. Lessons include Social Skills, English Language Arts, and Orientation and Mobility.

None required
