This is one of the first hands on lessons I ever tried with my counseling groups. Kids loved it and would ask if we can do it again.
At the end of the year I always ask my students what their favorite lessons were, "rocks and water" is among their favorites.
This lesson requires some preparation. Bringing some things from home as well as making a few things. Trust me, it is easy to assemble and prepare for this lesson. And well worth it!
Students are quickly engaged in the learning process using labeled rocks, water and a bowl. The activity elicits the discussion of feelings and the understanding of how to cope with Troubled Times.
Enjoy and have fun! You can find me at:
