Grounded in the fundamentals of child development, and currently held educational best practices at the state, local, and teacher level, empatheater is a curriculum that is designed to strengthen preschool and pre-kindergarten students understanding of their own and others’ feelings. The affordable and easily implemented curriculum, taught over 4 lessons on a weekly or monthly basis, breaks down emotions into their physical, facial, and auditory components. These components are conveyed to the children through the use of interactive hand puppets and role-playing.
