Product Description
An activity for identifying different emotions and associating them with various levels of intensity. Many young people who have autism or Asperger's syndrome have difficulty navigating subtle nuances in emotional reactions; they often jump between extremes. This worksheet helps students on the autism spectrum to broaden their language and to be able to self-advocate and describe the way they are feeling to others. Often the most severe word for an emotion evokes a blow-out of that extreme (hence comparing it to hot lava spilling out of a volcano.) For each box the student can draw a picture of how the emotion looks for them, then with a teacher's guidance they can list three synonyms for each emotion.

Example: Label the first box with "Sad." The three synonyms in order of intensity might be "unhappy" (low), "troubled" (medium) and "heartbroken" (high).
