A Lesson Plan For Happy HeARTs

Updated: Jan 22

Download our free Happy HeART Lesson Plan

Purpose of the Lesson:

When kids can identify the people, places, thoughts and things that help them to feel happy (and then hold these in their hearts), they can access their happy feelings any time. This leads them to experience the benefits from the “feel-good” chemicals (like dopamine) that then flood their bodies and brains.

Kids will learn to:

Recognize a range of feelings, both within themselves and expressed by others

Identify their many sources of happiness, so that they can tap into them anytime

Other Materials:

The Happy Hunting Book including Liza's Happy HeART sample and the Happy HeART Activity Sheet at the end of the story

A deck of Feeling Cards (optional)

May you always know where to find your HAPPY
