Free Downloadable Activity and Discussion Guide Inspired by We Don’t Eat Our Classmates

Penelope Rex shows us how she feels with her facial expressions—a huge smile when she’s happy, a wobbling lip when she’s nervous, a downward gaze when she’s sad. And we humans aren’t so different!
Help your students practice recognizing their own emotions with this fun “I Can Illustrate My Emotions!” activity. It’s inspired by K–5 elementary STEM specialist Sara Bowers, who is featured in this week’s Book Talks teacher review video.
