When we notice the world around us, we are present in the moment. Our five senses are a gift. They give us the ability to absorb and appreciate our environment. Noticing the gift of our senses allows us the opportunity to appreciate the senses, too.

This SIGHTS and SOUNDS presentation supports MINDFUL VISUALIZATION.

The proven benefits of mindful visualization are many.  Relief of anxiety, greater compassion, and improved ability to cope with stress are a few benefits.

Included in this rich slideshow are 10 colorful videos of NATURE. Each beautiful video includes prompts encouraging children to focus on 3 of the 5 SENSES. Some slides display visual images and others add sound. All the slides encourage students to remember or imagine sounds, sights, and feelings. Expect students to ask to see this slideshow several times. With each experience, students re-focus their attention on another of the three senses. Sights and sounds included in this deck are: light rain, a frog, crickets, wind, heavy rain, a worm, bees, a mud puddle, thunder, and a waterfall. 

Additional lesson activities include: a 5 Senses Poster & Coloring Sheet, a Nature Maze Puzzle, and a Nature Senses Word Search (with solution sheets as well), and a sights and sounds poem.
