As our first tuning in activity for our new unit we were given pictures of emotion face masks which had been all cut up. We worked together as a group to put the puzzles together and then label each mask with what emotion we thought it was displaying. This was the start of our emotions vocabulary building.
Our second tuning in activity was done through our senses. We took part in different tasting, smelling, touching, listening and looking experiences and said how we felt before and after each experience. Again this helped us build our vocabulary, become more aware of our emotions and also prompted us to think of several questions related to our emotions. We discovered that some of us felt different emotions even though the experiences were all the same. We were all great Risk Takers too.
