“Mirror Hands” Requires Teamwork and FocusPosted by Carlene Gordon
Each Thursday afternoon, our fourth graders participate in a new mindfulness activity. This week was an activity called, “Mirror Hands.” Facing a partner, partners rubbed their hands together to create warmth and then joined palms. One student lead the other student’s movements in silence. Students were required to focus on their partner’s subtle signals to follow moves. After a while, the teacher directed partners to switch and the activity continued. As a challenge, students were then instructed to switch leaders without a cue from the teachers and remain silent. Later the activity was attempted standing up without touching. Great focus and teamwork, fourth graders!
