This is a fun activity your students are sure to enjoy! Activities include:
Feelings Game: Give the children a variety of colored candies (Skittles) in a small cup or the individual packs. Use the chart to match colors to feelings (red=angry, green=sad, yellow=excited, orange=happy, purple=scared). Add images of faces next to the color. To play the game, the children choose one piece of candy, match it to the emotion on the chart and share a time that they felt that emotion. Ask questions and provide prompts if needed. When all the children have had a turn, invite them to eat the candy.
Candy Graph: Give the children a small bowl/ individual package of Skittles. First, have them sort the candy by color. Provide a graphing sheet for each child. The children can either graph their candies directly on the graph sheet or they can color one square to represent each candy, which is more difficult. Next, when they are finished, ask questions such as, “How many green Skittles do you have? How many red? What color do you have the least of?” The children can indicate their answers on the questions page. Eat the Skittles when done.
