Students will use the emotion task cards with playdough or markers. If using play dough, I suggest laminating for extra durability and extended use. Students will use play dough or markers to replicate the emotion shown. For example, students will create a “sad” or “happy” leprechaun face. Teaching students about a variety of emotions and what they look like is so important for young children’s social skills.
