I stumbled upon this wonderful class activity complete with a free printable that can really liven up a lesson about facial expressions and emotions. I wish I had known about it during my IHCYL training course. It would have certainly made my teaching practice easier; ).
Here it is, courtesy of Dabbles & Babbles: http://dabblesandbabbles.com/blank-faces-drawing-page/.
I would use this in the productive stage of the lesson. Students could draw various faces and then show and describe them in pairs or groups also adding reasons for the feelings they’re describing:
“She is feeling happy because…”
“He is angry because…”
Or it could be turned into a guessing game. Guess the facial expression: ).
What about you? How would you use this in class?
