Emotional Health: Being Afraid Can Help You-WHAT?!?

2nd Grade (Ages 7-8)


About the Story

This story describes how fear can actually help you to learn and stay alive. 

  • Fear is a natural emotion and all animals have it.   
  • When you are afraid of something, your body tells your brain.  Your brain then helps you to get ready to deal with the situation.  It is good to learn what scares you, so you can figure out how to deal with it. 
  • Different things scare different people.  Too much fear can hurt both your body and your brain.
