This Mini-Lesson explores empathy. Empathy is an awareness of other people’s feelings and emotions and is a key element of emotional intelligence. Understanding how others are feeling and being able to empathise with them is vital for developing and cultivating friends.
Although being empathetic can be an intuitive skill, it is a skill that can be developed. This mini-lesson supports students to tune into the physical and emotional cues of others, to explore sensitivity and understanding of other perspectives, and be able to show compassion, empathy for someone else, as if you were that person or standing in their shoes. This is a great resource for students who would like to explore empathy!
