Student Instructions

Emotions are like animals, some are gentle, other fierce and hard to tame. Inside this activity we take a look at an emotion we all feel. The idea is to create an Emotions Diary to reflect and record our emotions, using animals, colours and drawings. 1. Tap add to start. 2. If yearning was an animal it would drift on the tide, forever lost in longing for a joy that has been denied. 3. mic Record yourself saying how we can accept and let this emotion go. 4. Tap check to submit.
