Animal Treasure Lesson: Emotions

Objective: students imitate simple emotions through physical movement, facial expression, and posture.

Students practice imitating emotions using their bodies while playing animal characters (part of the 2nd grade objectives).  First read the included story "Animal Treasure or Everybody Gets Tricked" to students and then let them choose emotions to communicate.  We suggest beginning with the warm-up activity Pass the Face with the students before starting this lesson.  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Second Grade Curriculum.
