Name of Activity:
Lesson on Feelings
Purpose of Activity:Students will show a variety of feelings using body language and using words to express the different emotions.
Suggested Grade Level:K-2
Materials Needed:pencil and paper assessment for each student
Description of Idea
Talk about feelings and emotions with students (sad/happy/surprised/angry/tired/scared). Ask students about certain events that have happened that have made them feel these emotions. Sometimes we can tell people are feeling these emotions because of their body language - by looking at them and other times people use words to tell us how they are feeling
Students can take turns with a partner using body language to show different feelings and their partner will guess which feeling they are pretending to use.
Then students can use words to tell their partner times when they have been scared/surprised/happy, etc.
For 2nd graders you can add to the assessment a question where the students write down someone they trust to talk about their feelings.
