Are you searching for purposeful social skills activities for middle school and high school students? It’s a difficult topic, and it is hard to find something age-appropriate for your speech and language sessions. Check out these functional, real-world problem-solving scenarios for teens.

Make working on social skills activities fun and engaging!

Working on pragmatics is difficult. Working on pragmatics with middle schoolers and high schoolers is even harder. Use this thorough product designed to work on a variety of social skills activities with a fun travel theme to work on functional social skills. These interactive activities will give your students control of the situations and questions presented.

There are 80 social scenarios included, plus options to include custom-made ones depending on your student’s needs.

The activities in this product are organized in order from easiest to hardest. Keep in mind, many of these questions don’t have one right answer. The more complex cards are great for discussions.

Some of these scenarios are difficult, even for adults, but are real situations that will arise in life that are important to think about and discuss. If you find them too difficult for the teenager you are working with, try asking a different question that is more direct.

Pragmatic concepts targeted with this product:

  • Topic maintenance
  • Initiating conversations
  • Asking & answering questions
  • Identifying non-verbal aspects of language
  • Identifying the problem & solution
  • Spontaneously seeking assistance
  • Asking questions to clarify
  • Identifying sarcasm


► Are you struggling to engage your middle and high school students in conversation?
► Do you need functional language activities that are age-appropriate?
► Do you want a structured activity that covers a variety of pragmatic goals?
► Do you need activities that work for one-on-one sessions and group sessions?


Location & Situation Cards
Place the cards in 2 piles face down – locations & situations. Have the student pick one card from each pile, applying the situation to the store and answering.

These situations are the most basic and result in a straightforward answer.

Social Conversations
Pages discussing “Initiating Conversation,” “Asking & Answering Questions,” “Body Language,” and “Identifying Sarcasm.” Includes 6 open-ended or multiple-choice questions per page.

Pick Your Adventure Pragmatics Book
Includes: Map with travel destinations, 6 pages (a page per store) with 4 corresponding scenarios on each page.

The student makes 3 choices:
Choose a place to travel from the map
Choose if they are going with friends or family
Choose if they are flying or driving

There are 24 possible options to choose from. Each one has a separate scenario to respond to.

Social Experience Web Maps
Includes: “Taking an airplane flight…” and “Going to the museum…”

Each page shows a web map starting from the beginning of the experience to the end, with various social situations that arise. The student is asked to find solutions incorporating many pragmatic skills. Start at the beginning of the web diagram, read & answer each situation before moving onto the next box. Works great for group discussions.

Personal Reflection Worksheet
Single page with questions about difficult social situations and how to overcome them.

“Roll the Dice” Pragmatics Game
A generalization activity that targets thinking of a problem & solution. The purpose is to think about the social scenarios that may arise before you are put in a particular situation. This is the most difficult activity in the packet.
