Poster – Calm Down Thermometer

This laminated Calm Down Thermometer Poster can be used by teachers in the classroom or by therapists teaching the Dinosaur program. The thermometer is a visual representation of how to change emotions from “red hot mad” to “cool blue.” The poster has a brightly colored thermometer in the middle with a Velcro strip and arrow on the side. Students are taught to move the arrow up and down to show how they are feeling. Students who are feeling angry learn to take deep breaths or to use another calm-down strategy to get themselves back into the “blue zone.”
