Emotions Lesson Plan: Emotions Charades

Subject Area

Health Education


K, 1, 3


In this lesson plan, adaptable for grades K-3, students watch the BrainPOP Jr. movie Emotions and explore related resources to learn how to recognize our own emotions, and how being mindful of them can help us. Students will then play a game of Emotion Charades to demonstrate that our nonverbal communication can indicate someone's current feelings and emotions. In conclusion, students will discuss how identifying our emotions can help us select strategies to work through the emotions in a positive manner and support others as they experience emotions.
