Product Description

Empower students by teaching them about their brain and their feelings using the hand model of the brain! This resource is a kid-friendly way of explaining what "flipping a lid" means through illustrating the roles of the wise owl pre-frontal cortex, guard dog amygdala, and memory saver hippocampus. Begin a discussion about how to self-regulate when you flip a lid.

This resource is perfect for individual counseling, group counseling, or guidance lessons with students that become easily dysregulated. Help your students understand what's happening in their brains to gain their investment and excitement in calming their brains down! This resource is also awesome in trauma-sensitive or trauma-informed schools (and parts can definitely be used with faculty as well!).

Included:

  • Book/story in printable and PowerPoint form (34 pages)
  • "What part of the brain is this?" sorting cards
  • 2 mini-skits illustrating the role of the different parts of the brain when we flip a lid and when we calm down our amygdalas
  • 3 practice and coloring sheets about the parts of the brain
  • 2 worksheets about coping and calming down
  • 2 posters
