- Discuss about the feelings that have similar meanings. For example, sad is similar to upset or unhappy. Happy is similar to content or pleased.
- Discuss how each face shows the feeling. What does our mouth do when we are happy, sad, surprised, angry, tired, or excited? What do our eyes do? What do our eyebrows do?
- Finally, discuss times when we show each feeling. For example, we are excited to go on a field trip. We are sad when we get hurt. We are angry when someone takes our things.
- Call out a feeling and have the learners demonstrate the facial features of that feeling.
