calming activity

This is a great calming activity or coping tool to use when students need to cool down after an active lesson, are having a stressful moment, or need an emotion regulation strategy.

While based on the active rest between each Zoo Academy assessment scene, geared towards K-1 students, this calming activity could be used with students of any age. Students will use Lester the bird’s flying to visualize when to breathe. When Lester flies up, they’ll breathe in, and when Lester flies down, they’ll breathe out.
