Mindfulness Activities for the Classroom

Ready to bring mindfulness activities to your classroom? We often hear from teachers and students about how they are impacted by stress inside and outside of the classroom. We’ve compiled a selection of exercises from the Stop, Breathe & Think curriculum to give both teachers and students tools to deal with stress in a healthy and productive way. These exercises can be easily integrated into any academic setting.

This free packet features an introduction to mindfulness and the science behind how it works, scripts for foundational mindfulness exercises with follow up questions for group discussion, gratitude journal prompts, a kindness group activity, instructions for creating a “Settled or Stirred Meditating Snow Globe”, as well as best practices and helpful tips.
