This colorful educational booklet is part of our “Real-Life” series which uses publicly available videos (suitable for elementary grades) to generate lively discussions in your classroom. the resource has been designed like a kid’s magazine for Grades 4-5-6. This is a very relevant topic for your kids.
The educational booklet “Fear, What It Is and How It Works” is designed for children in grades 1-6 to help them better understand the natural, instinctive emotion of fear that every person experiences from time to time. The colorful illustrative resource is divided into a set of lesson plans for younger children (grades 1-3) and another set for older children (grades 4-6) to provide parents and educators with the flexibility to best meet the needs of the specific audience.
The detailed lesson plans are organized with an introductory section, clearly defined student objectives, ample resources, and outlined steps to assist the adult with adapting and teaching the lessons, leading the children’s discussions, and guiding them through the activities. The children will be well-equipped to complete the lessons’ independent practices and the assessment with confidence. And most importantly, the knowledge and skills gained in the lessons can be applied to real-life situations that the child presently experiences or experiences in the future.
Featuring an assortment of interesting articles and stories, kid-friendly videos, and fun activity sheets, the educational booklet enables children to gain valuable tips and tricks in dealing with their fears. The children will explore why people have this emotion (the good/healthy and the bad/unhealthy sides of fear) along with the purpose of fear and how it helps protect people from potentially dangerous threats. The activities will teach common reactions to fear and how the body prepares to react to the perceived threat in what is called the fight or flight response. The children will also learn that some fears change from healthy to unhealthy and how to replace negative fear if it grows too big.
Children will be given the opportunity to hear other children express their fears through a selected video so they know they are not alone in having fears as well as ample time to discuss their fears and find solutions with others. They will discover a whole range of fears beyond the natural fears of heights and sounds.
The booklet encourages children to seek out a parent, counselor, or another trained professional about any physical, emotional, or mental fears if they feel a need or want to talk about them. This is a helpful suggestion to give children support in dealing with this emotion. They are advised to also write out their feelings about their fears and to think logically. Through identifying their fears, the children are taught how to distinguish between good and bad fears and to make a realistic plan to conquer their fears including encouraging them to replace fear with love. The combination of activities allows children to gain the strategies they need to lead their best lives.
