This lesson is designed to explore students’ emotions and how to regulate these positive and sometimes negative feelings. This also provides a great insight into a child’s mind and what makes them tick, allowing you as the teacher to know more about their emotional wellbeing too!
Throughout this lesson they will learn some cross-transferable skills using Keynote on the iPad that can be used in other learning areas.
Lesson Objective: Students will be able to identify and label their emotions and use coping strategies to regulate them.
- Using the Keynote app, students will create a visual representation of their emotions by creating a mood board. Each student will choose a set of emojis that represent different emotions they may experience and add them to slide 3 in Keynote template.
- Students will then add captions, or recordings to each image, labelling the emotions they represent.
- Students will then copy all emojis and paste onto the next slide in Keynote where they will list different coping strategies they can use to regulate their emotions. Encourage students to use the inbuilt features of Keynote, drawing tool, shape library etc.
- Students will then present their mood board to the class and share some of their coping strategies.
