It is difficult for students on the spectrum to identify emotions. This lesson only takes a few minutes and teaches the ASL sign associated with three emotions. The emotions included in this document include happy, mad, and sad. There are 5-6 images of each emotion and the student must match the person with either happy, mad, or sad.
Real world application:
Help nonverbal students express how they feel by using the ASL associated with the three emotions. Or, point out other students that are displaying one of the emotions.
