What You’ll Need:
- One to Two Paper Plates per Student
- Markers or Crayons
Have each student choose two emotions (or assign each student two emotions): surprised, mad, sad, happy, bored, or scared. Have each student draw a face showing their chosen emotion on each of their plates. When everyone’s plates are decorated, staple the two plates together.
Give students a short scenario and ask them to show the face/emotion that they think the person in the scenario is feeling. For example: The puppy chewed mom’s shoes. Students with a mad- or sad-face plates should be showing their plates. Here are few more simple scenarios to give your students:
- John tried his best at his soccer game, but his team lost.
- Jane is watching TV, but she has already seen this show three times.
- As Susan climbed out further on the tree branch, she heard a loud crack.
- Brian was the youngest in the race, but he won!
