Who should this digital teaching resource be used with? (ie year/grade)

I would recommend this resource to be used with grade 2, but I believe it could be utilized in years 1 to 4.

How should it be used? (e.g. individual, whole class)

This resource would be best used by watching it on a smart board for the whole class, then individually or in small groups students could answer some questions in relation to the clip.

Which subject or learning area would it be most appropriate to use in?

This could be used in a couple of different learning areas, but I would say it would best suit Health.

Identify the strengths of this teaching resource

This bright, visually appealing resource is a great way for children to learn all the basic human emotions. It can be helpful for children to understand and see what they look like and why we have these emotions.

Identify any weaknesses of this teaching resource

There are many more emotions which fall under these six basic emotions, however I was unable to include them all within this video.

Explain any ideas you may have for further use of this teaching resource

This resource could be used to show the basic emotions, and then expanded on by the students thinking of other emotions and what primary emotion they would fall under. There are any number of questions that could be asked in regards to this resource which can facilitate discussion. Students may even like to create their own clip using Powtoons.
