Watch our Emotion Cards in Action!

The Language Builder Emotion Cards set features a range of actors from 1 to 70 years old, and from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Half the images are taken against a plain background, showing only the upper body and face. The remaining 40 cards portray people in realistic emotion-provoking situations and activities taken in natural settings and contexts. This educational card set helps children identify and discuss feelings as well as possible appropriate and inappropriate responses to these feelings.
