Then, introduce the “Sitting Still Like a Frog” practice by making connections to what you have learned, so far, about frogs. How do they move? When do they sit still? Why do frogs need to be very still? After making connections to previous learning, have students listen to the following (www.shambhala.com//images/illus/Sitting_Still_audio/03.%20Exercise%202%20-%20%20The%20Little%20Frog.mp3) and practice “sitting still like a frog.”
Debrief with students by having them write, draw, or create a picture about their experience. Or, have students engage in a think-pair-share with other students.
