- 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.)?
- 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.
- 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).
