Emotions Charades Icebreaker (5 minutes)
1. Explain to the students that before we start the lesson, we want to play a little game to get
our energy flowing.
2. The theme of the lesson today is emotions. So, we are going to play charades with
words that describe a feeling. There will be a performer who acts out what the word is,
and you all have to guess it. Lets see how many we can get in 5 minutes! I am going to
start as the first performer, and then I will call on the next person who raises their hand
and is behaving well to be the next performer.
3. Pick out a card from the Feelings in a Jar. Allow 15- 30 seconds for them to guess for
each performer. If they arent able to guess it, give them the answer, so that more students
have a chance to perform. (**Note: You may want to pick out easier cards for the
younger students).
How to Identify Your Emotions (10 minutes)
1. Pass out the handouts.
2. Go through the PowerPoint.
Different Ways to Cope with Your Emotions (20 minutes)

Did you like the game?
What was fun about it? What didn't you like?
What did you notice about the game?
Did we always guess the right word?
Did we often guess the same words over and over? Which ones?
What's something you learned from today's lesson? Are you taking
away anything that may be useful in your life?
Which strategies do you see people using most often? What is the effect of this?
Which positive coping strategies have you tried when you experienced strong emotions?
How have they helped?
What happened when you used some of the negative strategies on the list?
Are there times when some of the negative strategies might be appropriate?
Which time-out behaviors are helpful for you?

Plan for Evaluation: How will each of the following be collected?
Process Data: Attendance will be taken of all the students present for the lesson and from the
total number of post-session surveys.
Perception Data: Pre- and Post-tests will provide information on what students know and have
learned about emotional management. Post-test should indicate that students will be able to
identify at least 5 different ways to manage their emotions and actions.
Outcome Data: Data on safety, bullying, and behavior incidents will indicate effectiveness of
lesson plans.
Follow Up: Teachers and disciplinary staff will identify students who continue to display
impulsive behavior based on strong emotions and refer them to the school counselor.
