Character Ed / SEL worksheet for grades K-4
Empathy is the ability to understand how someone else is feeling. This worksheet can help children understand what "shared emotion" is, or it can help them see someone else's perspective.
K - 4
Empathy- The ability to understand how someone else is feeling. Empathy has two parts:
1. Shared emotion – when you feel an emotion with someone else, even though you aren’t in the same situation
2. Understanding other perspectives- understanding how someone else might see a situation (their perspective) even if you think differently about it. We call this being able to “put yourself in someone else’s shoes.”
Using the "Ways to show empathy" worksheet students draw a picture of a time they shared an emotion with someone, or a time they saw something from someone else's perspective.
