Product Description
What do you get when you combine role playing, drawing, imagination, experiential mindfulness activities and team collaboration? The Mindfulness Game Show! This mindfulness guidance lesson will not only engage your students, but also teach them ways they can self-regulate and increase levels of calm and focus.

Ways to Use
☀️ This FUN, interactive guidance lesson & game can be used as a stand-alone classroom guidance lesson about Mindfulness as an introduction to mindfulness, or as a review and/or supplement to your mindfulness lessons.
☀️ Great for your small groups, too!

What's Super Sweet About this Lesson?
❤️ The Game Show format is hands-on and experiential, with many of the challenges inviting students to learn and practice new mindfulness techniques.
❤️ This mindfulness classroom game encourages reflective thinking, and is designed for students to show off and build on their smarts in different ways.
❤️ Plus, the questions and challenges are 100% customizable so if you like, you can edit them to better fit your specific needs.
❤️ It's low-prep, perfect for all you busy counselors!

And if you are unfamiliar with mindfulness don't fret! In most of the challenges, I have provided details in the power point notes section, explaining the research and justification behind the activities.

Lesson Plan is also included!


HOW I USE THIS LESSON:
No matter the topic covered, I have found that as long as the lesson involves a bit of art, role-playing, games, and some freedom of movement, students are engaged. Students get to act/ role play, draw, imagine, take risks, and problem solve as a team.

The Game Show Categories Include:
ACT IT OUT: teams act out / role play the challenge prompt.
TRUE or FALSE: teams decide whether the statement is true or false.
SKETCH IT: teams quickly draw their answers.
IMAGINE IF: teams answer "Imagine If" questions, using their imagination & problem solving skills.
RISK: teams take a "risk" because the type of question and/or challenge is not revealed until chosen.

What's needed to play the Game Show?
✔ It is best used with a Promethean White Board or projector that that can be hooked up to your computer; it's formatted as a power point presentation,
✔ Want to go screen-free? No problem! This Game Show also comes with printable task cards with the same prompts as the Game Show challenges.

Provides lots of flexibility....
Given that the GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don't have that much time....or that the GAME SHOW works best projected on a large screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down....or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day....and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities......I have included more than 6 additional formats to teach about Mindfulness that do not requie the use of the power point presentation. (Note: the additional activities do involve some printing prep-work.)
