Happy April Fool’s Day!
Your students will love these fun April Fool's practical joke scenarios! (Tell them they are meant for the classroom only!)
Cut out and laminate the 12 cards (pages 3-5) and emotions cards page. (page 6)
Read through each of the 12 April Fool’s practical joke scenario cards (the cause). Decide what will happen next (the effect). Determine how the individuals in the situations might feel as a result of the effect (perspective taking).
Discuss what the practical joker might do next. Use the emotions cards to identify which of the feelings the person being fooled might be experiencing. You might use more than one of the emotions depending on your opinion of how someone would react to the situations.
Use the April Fool’s Cause/Effect Graphic Organizers to fill in the effects in writing as well as label the emotion that would coincide with each scenario. (pages 7-10)
