Faces With Feelings

Do you feel happy today? When do you feel sad?

  • Directions

    1. Talk with students about feelings. Ask the class how they would define the words "happy:" and "sad" without using those words in their sentences. Use Crayola® Dry Erase Markers on a classroom white board. Accept student contributions that are close to an accurate definition. Ask classmates to assist adjusting student definitions that may need a slight adjustment.
    2. Now ask students to pick a partner. Of the two members of the team, have the first member show a happy expression to a classmate. The second member of the team now expresses a sad face to his partner.
    3. As a class, ask for times when students feel happy or sad. List these contributions on the white board.
    4. Provide each student with two white paper plates and one craft stick. Ask students to create a happy facial expression and a sad facial expression, one on each paper plate. Use Crayola Crayons or markers to create each face. Glue both facial expressions to the craft stick, back-to-back. Allow to dry overnight.
  • Standards

    LA: Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions with diverse partners on grade level topics, texts, and issues, building on others' ideas and expressing one's own clearly.

    LA: Report on a topic or text, tell a story, or recount an experience with appropriate facts and relevant, descriptive details, speaking clearly at an understandable pace.

    VA: Use visual structures of art to communicate ideas.

  • Adaptations

    Possible classroom resource includes: The Feelings Book by Todd Parr

    Challenge students to identify what emotion they would feel for a given situation. For example, if they would accidently bump into a friend from long ago, who would they feel: happy or sad? Students use their face masks to answer the question.
