Accessing Prior Knowledge/Learning Story Part 1

Ask students to share what they know so far about “regulation”. It is fine if they mention the content you have just introduced.

  • Record any “key” words/concepts on the chart paper titled “What is Regulation?”

(with small, simple illustrations if possible)

Explain that the learning story part 1, covers the following concepts:

  • Our brain, body and emotions are connected.
  • Our energy level and our emotions work together. 
  • We can think of our energy levels like a battery. Sometimes we can have low energy, full energy, extra energy, or we can be overloaded.
  • We can learn how to match our emotions and energy level to our situations. This is called regulation.
