Snail and Puppy are two puppets from the Second Step curriculum that teachers can use to help younger students talk about emotions. As kids learn to recognize the emotions the two puppet pals are expressing, they can learn to recognize those emotions in themselves and their peers. Snail and Puppy also help demonstrate problem solving skills for dealing with conflict.
