Social Education Quiz - What Makes us Feel Emotions? - Age 5-7 (Questions)

This PSHE quiz, written for KS1 children in years 1 and 2, is related to Emotions in Others. In that quiz we saw how we can sometimes recognise how people are feeling based on their expression. In this one we find out how different circumstances and actions can change the way others feel.

There are many different ways we can feel - happy, sad, excited, nervous, proud, scared... Can you think of any other emotions? It is important to realise that the things we do and the words we say can affect how others feel. In thjis quiz we see how good you are at knowing which emotions different events will cause, in you and in others.

Have a go at all ten questions and see how well you know your emotions.
