AIM: What do you say with your body
Lesson Objectives:
Students will be able to:
understand a major part of communication is demonstrated through body
language (knowledge)
practice using body language to communicate different emotions (skills)
discuss and review how to read other peoples body language, and to think about
what their own body language might be communicating to others (attitudes/values)

Summary: When thinking about our own body language we need to think about:
What feeling do am I portraying? (Confident? Interested? Knowledgeable? Enthusiastic? Cold? Scared out of my wits?)
How do I look? (Tidy? Professional? Clean? Slovenly? Dirty? Shirt not tucked in?)
How do I sound? (Scared? Quiet? Loud? Confident? Know what I am talking about? Don't have a clue? Authoritative? Polite?
Rude? Mumbling?)
