3 WILt: When I learn this… I can compare physical and emotional similarities and differences between two children.I can demonstrate that people can have different feelings about the same situation.You might ask, why this lesson matters? Well, in early childhood, children begin to recognize that people can feel and think different things about the same situation. This skill is an important part of social perspective taking. Not assuming everyone feels just as they do or as they would in a situation helps children build empathy.
