The “Volcano Scale – My School Triggers” can also be used to help children identify anger triggers at school.  To complete this Volcano Scale, you will need a “Identify Your School Triggers” worksheet. Organize your 1’s, 2’s, 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s onto this scale.  You do not have to write down all of the items listed on the “Identify Your School Triggers” worksheet.  Just write down the items you think are most important to you.

 

Please let me know if you have any other interventions to combat anger.  Thanks for reading!
