Art & neurosciences project – part 3

Par défaut

This session was about the brain, the emotions and how to deal with them.

We first made a list of the emotions we knew and the 6 big emotions indexed by psychologists. Anger – Joy – Sadness – Disgust – Fear – Surprise

Then we have asked the pupils about the necessity of emotions

anger –> limits and change

fear –> caution, prudence

sadness –> comfort, ask …

Finally, we have talked about how to deal with emotions and the power of action we have on them

by acts, calm activities, help from the others, mindfulness.

so every child did his own 3D brains

 

and we have seen what has made by artists on this topic and what is good or not for our little brains
