Whether you’re using a standard curriculum like the Hawn Foundation’s MindUp (the one I use), or are teaching mindfulness in your own way, these task cards will reinforce your teaching and help you see how well students are learning the concepts. Here are just a few ways you can use them:
• Incorporate cards into a traditional board game by requiring students to answer a question before taking a turn, or create your own board game and use them as question cards
• Play Scoot to get kids moving around the room
• Have teams compete to answer questions
• Use for cooperative partner activities
-48 task cards, 12 in each of four topics: Brain Science, Practice, The Five Senses, and Mindful or Unmindful? Questions are roughly 75% True/False or multiple choice, and 25% open response.
-6 blank cards for you to write your own questions if desired
-blank answer sheet for students to record their responses
-Parts of the Mindful Brain poster
Please note that because I am using the MindUp curriculum, I do use some of that language in these cards. If you are using another program you’ll want to either make sure you’ve covered the information that is on each card or rewrite some questions on the blank cards to match your own terminology. If you have a specific question about this, please ask before purchasing.
