Things that happen everyday have a factor in your peace of mind. External influences contribute to our thoughts and actions, how we behave, what we feel. In the past few weeks we have dealt with the anniversary of Katrina, the death of Steve Irwin, and then today is the five year anniversary of 9/11.
If you are looking for ways to help your students find a peace of mind, Discovery Health offers a whole unit on this topic. With literacy strategies, complete lesson plans, and videos – Discovery Health Education Connection is a complete resource for teaching health. As teachers we often have to deal with aspects of health education, such as how to cope with these external influences.
In unitedstreaming you will find a few videos dealing with how to cope with stress. I’m sure if you look you’ll find other resources relating to a peaceful mind.
On a sidebar, if you are looking for ways to help teach about the significance of this day in history, check out unitedstreaming. In unitedstreaming, I did a Boolean Advanced Search for "9/11 -math" and found 7 videos and 45 video segments. You can also use the calendar feature to find the videos and video segments.
Hope you have a peaceful mind type of day.
