Emotional Health: What is Your Face Doing?

Pre-Kindergarten (Ages 4-5)

About the Story

This story talks about emotions and how the brain and face allow emotions to be shared with others. 

  • You “feel” different things depending on what is going on inside and outside of your body.  These “feelings” are emotions. 
  • All animals have some emotions – and people are animals.  Animals share these emotions with their faces.   
  • The reason our faces show how we are feeling is so others know how we are feeling.  Sometimes that is important for the survival of animals. 
  • Our brain lets us “show” how we feel by automatically making our faces change the way it looks.
