Playing emotions is at the heart of becoming a character and this lesson assists in building that skill.  Students first imitate simple actions to communicate emotions as others try to identify which emotion they have chosen (part of the 4th grade objectives).  Next they and a partner are given two emotions on which to create their own original very short scene.  Again, others try to name the emotions the partners are imitating. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Fourth Grade Curriculum.
