Our November lesson is on social awareness and building empathy and compassion.
We began by watching a fun Sesame Street video that defines Empathy (below).
To further our students' understanding of empathy, we read The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig and used the Mood Meter to identify how the characters were feeling.
If time allowed at the end of the lesson, students read scenarios and used their Empathy Detective skills to decide how the person would feel using the Mood Meter.
Parents, please download the files below to continue a conversation about empathy and compassion at home.
