Lack of emotional regulation can lead to lots of disruptions in the classroom. In this class, students meet Rory the Lion, a zoo animal who is extremely angry that he hasn’t gotten his lunch on time. When all he does is roar and roar, his zookeeper friend can’t understand him. The other zoo animals (played by the students) teach Rory to express emotions with words instead of simply screaming and crying.
