Object of the Game
The bear family is walking to Grandma’s house through the woods to share a big Thanksgiving dinner. Which path should they take? They have to cross the river. Oh, no! The bridge is out! They will have to go another way. The object of the game is to help the bear family arrive at Grandma’s before the roast turkey dinner is ready. Can you help?

A Cooperative Game
Going to Grandma’s is a cooperative game, meaning all the players work together. Everyone wins (or loses) at the same time when everyone has arrived at Grandma’s house in time for Thanksgiving dinner. Research shows that cooperative games—where everyone works together—help to foster friendships and help to prevent bullying.
