Feeling Faces

The use of group projects in a curriculum can be very useful, especially in bringing difficult concepts to the preschool level. To bring these concepts to fruition, all participants must, in a sense, become learners along with the children.

The teacher has to be careful to not act as a mentor but as a guide; that is, the teacher cannot think solely in terms of a prearranged destination to activity but must focus on offering a sense of discipline to the activity. Feelings and emotions consist of many complex components, and because of this, we must be creative in teaching our little ones about them! For this activity, we separated a variety of magazine clippings into four categories: happy, sad, angry, and surprised. Your little ones worked together to best determine whether the expression on the clipping was one of these emotions.
