Activity: Analyze Feeling

Objective:

to place information into categories

Materials:

1 scissors  for prep
3 hula hoop/ container  per whole group
~ 10 photos of people's faces  per whole group
(Optional)  ~ 1 child-friendly magazine  per learner
(Optional)  1 scissors  per learner

Supporting Media:

Prep:

  • Gather materials.
  • Cut out or print photos of various facial expressions.  

Instructions:

  1. Educator hands out kid-friendly magazines and asks learners to cut out people's faces (optional).
  2. Educator shows the learners several pictures of people's faces.
  3. The group discusses each photo paying attention to facial expressions.  Is the mouth open?  Are the eyes closed?  What are they doing with their hands?  Where was the photo taken (party, doctor's office, playground, etc.)?
  4. As the educator hold up each photo, the group also discusses if the photo shows a positive (good) feeling, a negative (bad) feeling, or a neutral (every-day) feeling.
  5. After each photo's discussion, a learner places the photo in the correct hula hoop or container that corresponds with the feeling given to the facial expression (good/bad/neutral).

Extension:

  • Discuss situations where feelings can be good/bad/neutral.  Example of a good situation is winning a game, a bad situation is getting in trouble, and a neutral situation is washing our hands.

Reflections:

  • I am able to categorize feelings.
  • I am able to make choices.
  • I am able to notice the feelings of people from pictures.
