Childhood is full of new experiences. Whether going to the doctor, traveling on an airplane, or visiting a relative’s house for the first time, talking about and planning for new experiences can help children manage their fears and expectations.

Watch the videos about New Experiences and think about how you could use them as part of the classroom activity or throughout the year as children face new experiences such as a trip to the doctor.
