Tell the class that we they were just exploring how feelings we experience on the inside shine through on the outside. Go through a few of the scenarios just presented to the class and get them to discuss what they noticed they did to show the feeling e.g. did they feel their eyebrows move, what shape did their mouth make?
Go through the Emotions PowerPoint with the class. Get the children to predict the feeling they feel is being shown and a possible reason for their answer.
Discuss with the class how our feelings are important as they give us important messages. Some feelings don’t feel as good as others but they provide us with important information. For example, if I find it hard to keep our eyes open, this tells me I need to take a rest. Get the children to suggest the feelings that don’t feel that nice when we have them. Ask the class if they can think of something they can do to change this feeling or make it better?
Tell the class that they will be creating a booklet together about our feelings. Each group of 3/4 will be given a different feeling. They begin by drawing times you might experience the given feeling. On the other side, they provide suggestions of things you can do when they have that feeling.
For example: Worried- about a test, a competition, a performance
Possible solution- tell your teacher, ask a friend or parent to practice
When completed, the groups present their work to the class and it is all put together to create a booklet.
