A Lesson in Understanding Feelings: How Heavy is Your Backpack?

Need a great lesson on exploring feelings?


Well, thanks to this fabulous video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzp82inXkM0 done by Julie Frost I was inspired to create this lesson. This video can be used in so many ways. Thanks for this great work Julie!

Here is the PPT I created that should guide you right through the lesson.   Exploring-feelings PPT (click here)


And here is the worksheet to go along with it. Worksheet: backpack-full-of-feelings

  1. Thank you for sharing a few virtual lessons! These will help new counselors as were are getting more familiar with offering virtual school counseling services.

    1. Awesome!! I did this yesterday and when I had real cans labeled to show the kids, I had one blank and said… “Sometimes nobody else knows the heavy stuff you are carrying around”… the big eyes of my 3rd graders spoke volumes!! I labled the other cans “Missing my friends”, “Covid”, “school work”. Glad your students liked the lesson!
