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.
