Anger Thermometer (PDF)

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

An anger thermometer is a tool that helps you understand and measure how angry you feel. It shows different levels of anger, from calm to very upset, which helps individuals become aware of their emotions.

This Anger Thermometer poster shows kids how mad they feel in response to a trigger. Each anger level corresponds to certain behaviors. For example, Annoyed/Disappointed/Upset can result in sighing and eye-rolling. This resource also recommends healthy coping strategies, such as taking deep breaths and moving their bodies.

Becoming aware of one’s anger level is the first step toward behavioral change. Kids and teens can use this handout whenever they need help with taming their temper and calming down.

Once they complete this, parents or teachers might find it beneficial to engage kids or teens in a calming activity, such as taking a short walk, listening to soothing music, or practicing deep breathing exercises. These activities can further help in reducing stress and promoting a sense of emotional well-being.

I have a calming/quiet corner in my classroom and have been looking for the right visual to help me explain to the kids about how they look when they feel a certain way and what to do and this is the best visual.

Thank you, Belen! Please don't forget to check our other worksheets, handouts, and posters.


The Anger Thermometer provides clear descriptions for kids and pre-teens. The "What You Can Do" section gives just enough examples without being overwhelming. This visual also complements the graphics used in the corresponding videos well.

Hi Robin! Thank you for taking the time to leave a positive review for our Anger Thermometer. We're so glad to hear that you found it practical and helpful for both kids and pre-teens. Thank you for mentioning how well the visual complements the graphics in our videos. Your feedback means so much to us. Have a wonderful day!

Anger Thermometer

I truly wanted a laminated "card" - something with some substance to it, and could not find that anywhere. It is downloaded and printed and laminated here at my school, but not the same. I would also like a laminated poster size - like 16X20 or even larger. Unavailable. Frustrating.

Thank you so much for your valuable feedback on our Anger Thermometer, R'Delle! We apologize that it did not meet your expectations related to a physical product. We're always thinking of ways to increase access and easy of use for our digital products in ways that are cost effective for our family run business. We will take your thoughts into consideration for future product development. We may try to expand to another platform that offers physical prints of our products in the future. We greatly appreciate you choosing our product, and we hope you can return if you are in need of any printable mental health products for kids in the future.
