Encourage your students to put down their cell phones and connect with the world around them! This activity asks students to find a place within their school campus to sit and observe the world around them. Students frequently write about what they see, hear, or even smell, in addition to how students and staff interact with one another. Be sure to leave time for discussion on their findings at the end of the block. They always have a lot to say!
This attachment includes directions for the activity in the shape of a hall pass students can carry with them.
