Big emotions can feel very uncomfortable, but what is underneath them? Based on The Anger Iceberg from the Gottman Institute this activity helps children to understand and explore their emotions. It can also be used to help children work out how they feel about a situation by putting the scenario at the top and then putting thoughts, feelings and images about it underneath. Can be used as a tool in restorative conversations as well.
