Resource Info

Have your children place themselves in the bird's cage in this empathy related task.

Directions: Empathy doesn't just apply to humans. Ask your child to look at the picture of our bird in the cage – what do they think the bird might be feeling and thinking? Can they imagine themselves as the bird in this scenario?

This activity is all about encouraging your children to place themselves in someone else’s shoes and imagine another’s perspective.
