These exercises are intended for Key Stage 2 - 4 students who have difficulty in knowing how they feel or in imagining the state of mind of other people, and may have trouble in their social functioning as a result. They could be useful to pupils who are understood to be on the autistic spectrum, but also for any student who has difficulty in perceiving emotion in themselves and others.
Feedback from teachers has indicated that they can also be used to stimulate imagination and help pupils to write short stories about each situation.
