Part One - We all have feelings
This is the alien Maz.
He is visiting earth to discover more about people and today Maz wants to learn all about feelings. Can you draw a friend for Maz and give them a name?
Then think of all the names of feelings you might have every day. We all have different feelings, some we might feel every day and others just sometimes,
Our feelings can come and go and can change over time.
You could write the names of different feelings all around Maz's friend so that Maz and his friend have a list of feelings names to help them.
If you prefer you can download the sheet below.
There is also a wordmat of feelings words that you might want to use to help you.
Part Two - We all have feelings
Use your feelings list made in part one (or the feelings wordmat) and show your Maz, his friend and your family what different feelings might look like on people's faces and bodies. Try these:
Challenge - Tell Maz and his friend what signs to look out for if someone was scared, or any of the other feelings. What might they say, do , behave like? e.g. where in Maz's body might he experience each feeling? What might happen to his face / body when he feels it? e.g. Maz might clench his fist / his legs start feeling shaky / his tummy hurts / he bites his nails / his teeth start to chatter etc..
We are all different and we might have the same feeling but our bodies might react in different ways.
Draw different feelings on faces and cut them out to make cards. Write feelings words onto cards too. Match the face to the feelings word cards.
