Marcey’s class (and the whole of 4th grade) recently did an inquiry unit on the Rainforest. To celebrate the unit and all they learned, the students hosted a Rainforest Conference. They split into different groups and presented to other students and teachers about a topic of their choosing. Endangered animals and mining were among the topics, and the kids put a lot of effort into their tech-based presentations.
But along with presentations comes the dreaded task of public
speaking. Marcey and I decided that a guided meditation about the
rainforest might help calm the kids down before the conference, and get
their mind focused and ready to talk about what they learned.
